May 19 - Central Park

After the early morning R-t Loon (see previous post), I was down in Central Park leading Paul Sweet's Friday morning AMNH bird walk. It was hot and fewer birds than earlier in the week, but we still had some nice birds. Easily the best was the fairly cooperative male Bay-breasted Warbler on the Belvedere Castle plaza. Somewhat surprising was an Eastern Phoebe at Hernshead - it is getting later for this bird in the park. Our full list of 35 species is below.
