Green-Wood Cemetery Spring Birds Highlights

While it may technically still be Spring until June 21st, the northbound migration in Green-Wood Cemetery is over. There may still be a few birds dribbling through the area, but the peak of Spring migration is behind us. My birding tours (and Brooklyn birding in general) this Spring were very productive. For the months of April and May we totaled 135 species in Green-Wood Cemetery...118 of which were in May alone! We were fortunate to have photographer Evan Rabeck along for many of the walks and I've created a short slideshow video of his photographs to celebrate Spring in historic Green-Wood Cemetery. Enjoy.
