Four brave, and subsequently damp, participants braved this morning's wind and rain for my Thursday morning AMNH Central Park walk. I wish I could say they were rewarded with some fabulous bird, but alas, things were fairly quiet. For much of the walk, I believe the factor holding down the birds was the dimness as much as the inclement weather. The short bird list follows.
Red-tailed Hawk (Maintenance Meadow)
Ruby-throated Hummingbird (one coming into a Jewelweed patch as they have for the last couple of weeks)
American Redstart (1, Rustic Pavilion)
Blackpoll Warbler (1, Rustic Pavilion)
White-throated Sparrow (3, the first I have seen this fall)
Scarlet Tanager (1, Rustic Pavilion)
Rose-breasted Grosbeak (1, calling on the Point)
