Comments:
The RAP Radar showed minimal bird movement behind the storms last night but there were some birds offshore this morning. Birds started moving into the park from the east side about 1015 and slowly worked their way west into other parts of the park. Probable Dickcissel at 1110 on east side but bird dived into thick understory after crossing the road. Gave 3 flight calls as it flew over me - loud, hoarse farty buzz. Larger and stockier than warbler, with white undertail coverts, some yellow on upper breast and black on the lower throat. Unfortunately it wasn't a definitive look. By early afternoon a large warbler flock formed on bike path across from P3. There are numerous large fruiting Strangler Figs throughout the park but so far, only 1-2 have attracted birds. The 2 largest Mulberry trees still have some fruit but so far, no noticeable activity there.
