East Village Birding List

by Mary Szpur

My partner and I have started to become interested in birds. We have discovered that even in an urban environment, you can see a good variety of winged creatures, if you just pay attention. We took a stroll to Humboldt Park on a beautiful warm Saturday in April and walked around the marshes and lagoons. Below is a list of what we saw; had we brought our binoculars, we probably would have seen more. I would love to know what birds people here spot in their back yards and at the local green spaces.

Red-crowned kinglet
Wood duck
Mallard duck
American coot
Northern flicker (probably)
Red-winged Blackbird
