The sparrows are out in full force and taking a closer look at that little brown buddy can reveal a heck of a lot. I took a quick trip into Floyd Bennett Field Friday before celebrating the 3rd year of the Feminist Bird Club's existence and then I joined a Feminist Bird Club walk on Saturday, led by the AMAZING Akilah!
Good birds, good people, there isn't too much more I ask for in life!
|Savannah sparrows are ever present in grassy, open areas. They are so sharp looking, I love their pink bills and yellow faces.|
|Also plentiful and possibly arriving in these parts to over-winter, yellow-rumped warblers.|
These butter butts survive here over winter as they switch from an insectivorous diet to one of berries, able to survive the winter on those winter fruits.
|Activing fishing the waterways, this is one of a pair of belted kingfishers.|
|A nice surprise, a juvenile white-crowned sparrow, spotted briefly.|
|Another nice surprise was this (one of two) greater yellow-legs and 21 semipalmated plovers, just resting next to the Penn Pier area.|
|Also off of Penn Pier, one can enjoy fishing. Both bird and humans were busy fishing off the pier.|
|I do love me a photogenic double-crested cormorant in a fall's golden morning light.|
