How was your weekend? Any good birds? Tell us about your best bird.

I thought that the Black Vulture over Bear Mountain in Rockland County or the Fish Crows flying overhead in Dumont, NJ would be my best birds. However, that changed once, in a stroke of serendipty, I drove past one of the two notorious Monk Parakeet colonies in New Jersey, this one in Edgewater. Corey’s best bird was a Peregrine Falcon chasing better birds off the East Pond at Jamaica Bay. With all the birds Charlie sees in his travels, he hasn’t singled any one out this weekend as his very best.
