Sparrows and warblers in NYC


Recommended Posts

Happy Fall migration everyone. I went birding today in Central Park. Took a lot of blurry photos 🙂

A couple stumpers here. I tried my best to narrow down my hunches.

Photos 1 and 2: Either a lincoln or sparrow.

Photo 3: Female Pine?

Photo 4. Cape May Warbler- basing it on streaks and yellow tone. It perched right above me!

Photo 5: Song Sparrow?

Photo 6: Pine Warbler

Thank you so much for your help!

As with Cape May, there's no law that prohibits Blackpolls from being on the ground:

In the cropped and enlarged pic, note extensive white tips to primaries and Blackpoll head pattern and color (Blackpoll being greener than Pine)
