Stony Creek Metropark – American Pipits and Misc songbirds

After I got off of work, I headed to Stony Creek… I figured that there would still be a few birds lingering around since the am… There were not many warblers… a big flock of Yellow-rumped Warblers and a few palms could be found by Mt. Vernon Picnic area… In the mudflats by the stone bridge out to the island, there were half a dozen American Pipits… They were not very close and sitting out in the mud… I waited patiently until they slowly moved close enough for some cropped photos… The lake is very low as they are doing repairs on the dam… Its concentrating the ducks and geese in small areas… Near the North Dam and off of Bay point beach held the most species… Pied-billed Grebes, Mallards, Gadwall and American Wigeon were there today with 9 Sandhill Cranes on the mudflats surrounding the Island…. I ran into a large flock of Ruby-crowned Kinglets on the road into Mt. Vernon… probably about 30 of them… There were not many shorebirds around in the afternoon… 3 Lesser Yellowlegs and a few Killdeer were all I saw.
