Linneaen Society Spring Migration Walk


This morning I lead the New York City Linneaen Society’s Annual Spring Migration Walk at the Bashakill.  It was rescheduled from yesterday due to the rain.  Eight members participated and a good time was had by all.  We had some nice birds including my FOS  INDIGO BUNTING!  Also nice were a flock of nine PECTORAL SANDPIPERS!  We had all the usual suspects including 16 species of warblers, Scarlet Tanager, Orchard and Baltimore Orioles, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, five species of thrush and much more. Another highlight of the day was when, while driving along South Road, we saw a mother Red Fox attempting to move her kits to the uphill side of the road.  Fortunately, we were able to get stopped and the kits remained safe.  I was only able to catch a shot of one of the kits, a real cutie! I’d like to thank Dale Dancis for arranging our annual walk.
