[~BEGIN RBA TAPE~]

Greetings.  This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, April
9th, at 11:00 pm.  The highlights of today's tape are SWALLOW-TAILED
KITES, RED PHALAROPE, PROTHONOTARY WARBLER, UPLAND SANDPIPER, fishing
trip results, and Spring migrants.

It began on Tuesday with a SWALLOW-TAILED KITE passing a hawk watch at
Sandy Hook, NJ, the observers following the bird as it headed towards
Coney Island.  Then on Wednesday a SWALLOW-TAILED KITE was observed
soaring over Lake Montauk, eventually moving out of sight.  This was
followed by one late Thursday afternoon in Westchester County over
Pines Bridge Road in the Yorktown/Millwood area.  A free doughnut – to
anyone who finds a New York Swallow-tailed Kite that stays put in the
same area for a while!

Other good seasonal finds this week have featured a winter-plumaged
RED PHALAROPE that appeared at the south end of Sag Pond [aka
Sagaponack Pond] at Bridgehampton this afternoon, where other
shorebirds included seven GREATER YELLOWLEGS and five LESSER
YELLOWLEGS; a PROTHONOTARY WARBLER seen briefly in Northport last
Saturday; and an UPLAND SANDPIPER that stayed along the roadway
between parking fields 4 and 5 at Robert Moses State Park from Monday
to at least Thursday.  Also quite notable was the collection of birds
seen last Saturday from a fishing boat 28 miles south of Shinnecock
Inlet.  These included one or two LITTLE GULLS with some BONAPARTE'S
GULLS, and a number of alcids including 100 RAZORBILLS, 3 COMMON
MURRES, 5+ DOVEKIES, and 25+ ATLANTIC PUFFINS.

The previously reported CATTLE EGRET stayed along Route 27 just west
of Hither Hills State Park in Montauk to Tuesday, but the SANDHILL
CRANES in Bridgehampton were not seen after the 2nd, perhaps being the
same two showing up on Block Island in Rhode Island.

Recent arrivals in the city parks, which effectively serve as our
migration barometer, especially for passerines, have included in
Central Park: BLUE-HEADED VIREO, WHITE-EYED VIREO, and BLUE-GRAY
GNATCATCHER Monday, BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER Wednesday, and CHIMNEY
SWIFT and an early NORTHERN PARULA Thursday.  Prospect Park has had a
similar mix, with a GNATCATCHER as of Sunday, three BLUE-WINGED TEAL
on the Lake Tuesday, BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER at two locations
Wednesday, and some flyover GLOSSY IBIS on Wednesday.  The Prospect
Park ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER, still by the Lullwater last Saturday, had
relocated to the Nethermead Arch Sunday, and has probably moved on.
Both parks, like many other sites, have also featured numbers of PINE
WARBLERS, PALM WARBLERS, and LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSHES.

At Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, arriving waterbirds have included
LITTLE BLUE HERON, TRICOLORED HERON, GREEN HERON, GLOSSY IBIS, LEAST
SANDPIPER, LAUGHING GULL, as well as some FORSTER'S TERNS as of
Monday.  FORSTER'S were also noted at Jones Beach West End Tuesday.  A
LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL was also at Jones Beach West End Thursday,
and among the many Northern Gannets, loons, and sea ducks moving along
the south shore of Long Island lately were two RED-NECKED GREBES off
Robert Moses State Park on Tuesday.

Back out East, an ICELAND GULL joined six PIPING PLOVERS at Mecox
Sunday, while Sag Pond that day produced both Yellowlegs, LEAST
SANDPIPER, one ICELAND GULL, two LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS, and a
BOAT-TAILED GRACKLE.  Four BLUE-WINGED TEAL were at Hook Pond in East
Hampton Tuesday, and two HARLEQUIN DUCKS were still at Montauk Point
last Sunday.

To phone in reports on Long Island, call Tony Lauro at (631) 734-4126,
or during the day except Sunday call Tom Burke at (212) 372-1483.
This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the
National Audubon Society.  Thank you for calling.
