The Bronz Zoo is a great place to see birds- and not just the species on exhibit!
|A mother Wood Duck with her ducklings swims on the |
Bronx River, on May 12, 2017, at the Bronx River,
seen from the Mitsubishi River Walk. Species like this
are able to breed and raise their young in the habitat
around the Bronx River.
|A Spotted Sandpiper foraging on an exposed muddy bank|
of the Bronx River, seen from the Mitsubishi River Walk, in
|A Solitary Sandpiper forages in the watery areas of the |
Père David's deer exhibit in May 2017. This species can also
be seen on the mudflats from the Mitsubishi River Walk.
|Baltimore Orioles migrate through the forest at the Bronx River|
and some also stick around through breeding season, per eBird.
|A Magnolia Warbler hunts for insects in this flowering oak|
tree on the Mitsubishi River Walk in May 2017.
|Yellow Warblers migrate through but also stick around|
during breeding season. Keep an eye and ear out for them
on the River Walk.
|A Blackburnian Warbler visited and sang for me on May 15,|
2017, just outside the bison exhibit, in the riparian
area of the river.
|Spectacularly, a Yellow-throated Warbler passed through the|
Bronx River habitat on May 15, 2017. This is not a common
species in the Bronx at all, but combing good habitat at the right
time is a good way to find something special!
|Warbling Vireos migrate through the Bronx Zoo and also|
stick around during the breeding season, per eBird. More
likely to be heard than seen, listen for their string of whistles.
