|Looking downstream along the Bronx River, |
at New York Botanical Garden in June 2017
|A sign at the Bronx Zoo (at the World of Birds) depicts |
an American Redstart and notes the ecological importance of the
Bronx River for migratory birds.
|I saw an American Redstart chasing insects in a tree about |
50 feet from the sign pictured above, at the Bronx Zoo.
|A relatively wide section of the Bronx River at the Bronx Zoo, |
visible from the Mitisubisi River Walk or from the opposite site
at the Fordham Road entrance.
|A Great Egret stalks its prey in the Bronx River, |
at Soundview Park just before it empties into the East River
(a tidal straight between Long Island Sound and
Upper New York Bay).
