Some Fall Birds

A friend and I went horse back riding last Saturday and then we took a walk around Jamaica Bay. It was a lovely Saturday with a light wind but pretty warm for this time of year. No snow geese yet, though I read they have been spotted. We did see American Coots and American Wigeons both life birds for me. Then we saw Kinglets and sparrows- White throateed, Song and Chipping. The White-Throated Sparrow was the white-striped form. Previously I had only seen the tan striped form.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments.
Shirley thanks for visiting.
Dan it was a nice day. We really need to do a BwBTC at Jamaica Bay.
Jenn and Kerri, I love the White-throated Sparrows too. I had about 3 in the Spring in my yard, but haven't seen them this fall.
