Went to Wave Hill today for NYC Audubon's Second-Sunday bird walk, led by Gabriel Willow. No sooner had we commented that we hadn't seen a raptor yet, this guy arrived and put on a nice display. (Thanks, Gabriel!)
Thanks to a bit of pishing by Gabriel, some of us were able to see the above bird -- one of five warbler species in the tree. What is it?
More on the Wave Hill public gardens and cultural center here.
More pix follow. I'll do another mystery from Wave Hill next Monday.
Gabriel Willow of NYC Audubon posted a writeup of Sunday's Wave Hill bird walks on the Wave Hill blog, and was nice enough to use a few of my photos from the morning walk.
Wave Hill is having a Birding Boot Camp tomorrow (Saturday) from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Had an amazing guided bird walk at Wave Hill with NYC Audubon on Sunday.
Highlights included Black-throated Green, Back-throated Blue, Common Raven and Bald Eagle. Scenery wasn't too shabby either.
Full list follows.
Our guide, Gabriel Willow of NYC Audubon, found this Black-throated Green, two Black-throated Blues, a Common Raven and 28 other species on this morning's Second-Sunday walk.
Will post more pix and a full list (for those who are interested) later.
