Birding the Bronx River, other spots here and there
The Bronx River flows under E Tremont Ave, south of the Bronx Zoo, past Drew Gardens.
A Double-crested Cormorant and Canada Geese use the river next to Drew Gardens, a 2-acre community garden.
Drew Garden's land is mainly used for fruit, vegetable, and flower gardening by its members. It features a pollinator garden, several native trees, and some habitat along the riparian zone. Although I haven't birded here, in the time I have spent there I have seen Yellow Warblers, Gray Catbirds, and even bumped into an American Woodcock migrating through one March.
