March 10 - Prospect Park

A visit to Brooklyn for a Varied Thrush...I had not seen this species since the Central Park bird of November 2010.  This Prospect Park bird showed well between 8:30 and 10:00 before flying off.  It was first seen near it's favored spot of the hillside near the Nevermead Arches Bridge, just up slope from the sparse Yew Tree.  It quickly flew across the ravine & up into a tree.  Seeing this bird in flight with it's strong wing stripe was nice.

So each day this month I get to re-live seeing the Prospect Park bird !!
