    A little bird told me that my book Birding at the Bridge’s small size & over 150 photos makes it the perfect gift.

    Downy Woodpecker
    Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 4


    Where to find them: This female was busy inspecting the cracks of the small trees and tree supports (shown here) for insects at Pier 4, at the foot of the sloping lawn across from the mini beach. Downy woodpeckers are also often seen at Pier 1, especially in the trees along with wooded paths adjacent to the main park path. I do see them occasionally at Pier 6 meadow.

    Cedar Waxwings & Freedom Tower
    Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 4

    Where to find them: Check the trees opposite Pier 4 beach (at the foot of the sloping lawn). The trees just north along the park of Pier 3 uplands are another possibility. These two locations are based on observations this week. Flocks of waxwings also sometimes appear on Pier 1 and Pier 6.
