Time's Fun When You're Having Flies

ust a couple new arrivals at Liberty State Park this morning for me, and both Flycatchers: Willow and Eastern Wood Pewee.

Other good showings were made by a pair of Yellow Warblers pulling high Gs in barrel rolls around and through a stand of birch, Scarlet Tanager preening in a cottonwood, a Spotted Sandpiper picking and bobbing through the peat in the Grove of Remembrance, and a hair-ruffling blast of jetwash from a near collision with a Northern Flicker as I rounded a blind corner on the IC trail.

Also, a first-ever Hoboken bird on a smoke break at work: Male Common Yellowthroat singing in an apple tree in front of the downtown post office.
