September 18 - Central Park

Another beautiful morning in the Ramble for my Thursday AMNH bird walk group (7 - 9 AM). It was not as busy as I would expect on such a lovely mid-September morning, but it was definitely busier than yesterday morning. The most activity was in the Maintenance Meadow and around the Azalea Pond. The full list is below.

Canada Goose
Rock Pigeon
Mourning Dove
Chimney Swift (overhead in various places)
Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Maintnenance Meadow)
Red-bellied Woodpecker
Downy Woodpecker
Northern Flicker
Eastern Wood-Pewee (actively flycatching west of the Azalea Pond)
Blue-headed Vireo (Cherry Hill south side of Bow Bridge)
Warbling Vireo (west of Azalea Pond)
Philadelphia Vireo (After hearing of a report of one on Cherry Hill we went over to look for it. We had no luck with the Philly, so we headed back over the Bow Bridge into the Ramble. I briefly spotted the bird high in a tree just north of the Bow Bridge. Unfortunately, I was the only one in the group to see the bird.)
Red-eyed Vireo
Blue Jay
Tufted Titmouse (north and south of Bow Bridge)
Carolina Wren
Swainson's Thrush (west of Azalea Pond feeding on berries high in the trees)
