May 21 - Central Park

A surprisingly birdy morning for my Wednesday AMNH bird walk in the Ramble. Though there were a good variety of birds around, the birding has reached the somewhat frustrating stage of birds being hard to see because most of the trees are fully leaved out now. Still, we were able to find a total of 46 species and 17 warblers. Flycatchers seemed to be in short supply for this point in migration while there were a few migrants you don't normally expect to see this late.
