September 25 - Central Park

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.

Canada Goose
Red-tailed Hawk (Maintenance Meadow)
Rock Pigeon
Mourning Dove
Ruby-throated Hummingbird (one coming into a Jewelweed patch as they have for the last couple of                weeks)
Red-bellied Woodpecker
Northern Flicker
Eastern Phoebe
Blue Jay
Swainson's Thrush
American Robin
Gray Catbird
Black-and-white Warbler
Common Yellowthroat
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)
Northern Cardinal
Rose-breasted Grosbeak (1, calling on the Point)
House Sparrow
