Corey’s Queens Life List

The first time I birded in Queens was 28 September 2005, when I had been birding for about four months.  On that day I saw 23 species at Alley Pond Park.  I moved to Queens on 01 March 2008 by which point I had seen 168 species in Queens.  By 01 March 2009, my tally was up to 223 species, and I broke 250 on 13 May 2010.  My 300th species in Queens was a Western Kingbird on 27 September 2013.

I have been playing what is to me the fun game of guessing what are likely to be the next birds to be added to my Queens list.  Here is the first time I triedhere is how I did with those guesses along with my next predictions, here is my third attempthere is the fourth, the fifth, and here is the most recent.

Queens offers truly great birding, with hotspots like Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, Alley Pond Park, and Forest Park complemented by coastal sites like Fort Tilden and Breezy Point, to say nothing about some less-birded parks like Flushing Meadows-Corona Park and Kissena Park.  At any season one can easily rack up a nice species list, but fall and spring are, of course, the best.

Links in the list below are to posts featuring images of the bird in question, taken in Queens.
