May 29 - Central Park

From the temperature this morning one might have thought we had returned to early April! The fully leaved out trees hiding the few warblers from view, however, would have clued you in that we were in late-May. The mainly female warblers and the variety of thrushes would also have given you a hint that we were in the tail end of migration. It was much quieter than yesterday. We had a total of 33 species. The total list is below.

I have put up a separate page with the cumulative bird list for the whole spring set of Thursday walks. You can get to it by clicking on it in the list of pages to the right, just above the list of outside links.
