Fall migration begins

It's that time of year when birds begin their fall migration south, and we start seeing many different types of birds passing through the city.  Below are a couple of colorful warblers to look out for in Tompkins Square.  They're tiny - smaller than sparrows - and move very quickly as they feed on insects in the trees.
