October 16 - Overpeck Park stables

This morning I stopped here briefly before work. The highlights would be the Blue Grosbeak, and a pair of Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers.

Sparrows seen were: Song, Swamp, White-Throated, White-Crowned, Lincoln's, Chipping, Field, and Towhee. Hermit Thrush and Golden-Crowned Kinglets were also viewed today.
A non-birding highlight was the Red Fox seen at very close range before he noticed me.

Finally when arriving at work I saw a Common Raven.

This species nests along the Palisades cliffs, and often resorts to dumpster-diving at the diner that is two doors south of my workplace.
