These are from last week, Monday 11/16, in Coney Island, when there were cave swallows all over the place (I missed the boat on those) and from last Sunday, 11/22 at Floyd Bennett Field.
|I love bird eyes, often, from afar, they just look like little black beady things, but you can see the gold iris around the dark pupil.|
|Was hoping maybe just maybe this was a lesser black-back gull... nope, just a smiling herring gull.|
|We saw a good number of sparrows, like this song sparrow. We also saw white-throated, field, savannah, a fox sparrow, and juncos.|
|At the fishing area, we saw some bufflehead, far off loons, and cormorants. The normally abundant brant and gulls were nowhere this day, it was amazingly not an abundant bird day. I blamed the weather.|
