November 1 - Overpeck Park

credit: John C Avise

My friend Bill and I did some local birding this morning and were surprised to see a Greater White-Fronted Goose in the playground area of the park. Many other species were seen over the course of our nealry 4 hour walk. Notables included Orange-Crowned Warbler, Monk Parakeets, Purple Finch,
Sparrows seen were House, Song, Swamp, Savannah, Chipping, Field, White-Throated, Fox and others of Dark-Eyed Junco and Eastern Towhee. One surprise was a Common/Wilson's Snipe and yet another surprise was a pair of flyover Ravens !

So a very good day of birding was had in a local spot.
