The birds remembered Al

The late Al Ott was scheduled to lead a trip to Floyd Bennett Field for the Queens Bird Club this past Sunday. In honor of Al, the trip proceeded as planned. I think Al would have wanted it that way. The short, but impressive list of species seen (as reported on NYC Bird Report) seemed as if the birds also came out to pay homage to the big man.

Green-winged Teal
Red-shouldered Hawk
American Kestrel
Merlin
Red Knot
Dunlin
Laughing Gull
Belted Kingfisher
Hairy Woodpecker
Horned Lark
Brown Thrasher
American Pipit
White-crowned Sparrow
Snow Bunting
Purple Finch
Pine Siskin
