Green-winged Teal and others TODAY

Green-winged Teal [m] --

David Barrett reports at 1:24pm today, via eBirdsaNYC:

The highlight of a late-morning survey of the Ramble was a quartet of GREEN-WINGED TEAL swimming on the Lake (two male and two female)east of Hernshead, near the opposite shore. I also saw my first-of-season SWAMP SPARROW at the Lower Lobe, after having seen my first-of-season FIELD SPARROW yesterday on the Randall's Island restored saltmarsh. An increased supply of Dark-eyed Juncos was evident throughout the Ramble.
