Morningside Park

Since Hilldale Pond is only a few miles from Morningside Park, I suspect that the Great Egret at Morningside today may be the same bird from Hilldale a few days ago.

The islands and mud flats at Morningside are making a very slow appearance. They are currently at only about 7% of where they should be. That said, a few birds continue to show up. I think that the small area of habitat is the reason they seem to move on each day. Other than the Killdeer and Spotted Sandpipers, I believe the other species have been new birds each time I go. Here is the list of birds of note this morning.

Killdeer 3
Spotted Sandpiper 3
Least Sandpiper 13
Great Egret 1
Great Blue Heron 2
Green Heron 1
Belted Kingfisher 1
