A visit to Prospect Park in Brooklyn was on tap for today. We had a few spring migrants like the Eastern Phoebe, Pine Warbler, and Wood Duck. An Iceland Gull was unexpected.
Our primary target was the Northern Goshawk that has been exploiting the recent heavy snowfall that covered much of the available food and has caused many birds to rely on the feeders. After about 2 hours we saw the Goshawk in a long flight. Soon after we again saw the Goshawk flying a shorter flight.
