Two reports from Sunday's ace birdwatchers: [via ebirdsNYC]

1. from Anders Peltomaa:

Hi all, In the late afternoon at about 6 pm I heard a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher doing its "tyrree" calls from the top of a tree west of the Humming Tombstone. I didn't manage to get the bird in view with my binos, but if you are going birding tomorrow it could be worth checking that area.
