October 1 - Central Park

A very gray morning in the Ramble for my Central Park AMNH birdwalk group. The good thing was that the weather never got worse then a light mist; the bad was that there weren't many birds around. There was no really active area for birds, though the area around Willow Rock (south of Jean's Drain - named today for a walk participant) was the most active spot. The list follows.

Canada Goose
Gadwall (2, Turtle Pond)
Black-crowned Night-Heron (1, seen by one person flying past the Point)
Herring Gull
Rock Pigeon
Mourning Dove
Ruby-throated Hummingbird (1, Willow Rock)
Red-bellied Woodpecker
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker (1, immature by Willow Rock)
Downy Woodpecker
