October 16 - Central Park

A slightly damp morning for two brave AMNH bird walk participants in the Ramble in Central Park. For the most part, the rains held off with only a couple of periods of light rain. Luckily, the longest and heaviest spell came when we were by the Belvedere Castle so we had a place to stand out of the rain and still bird. Despite the weather we managed to find 30 species.

Wood Duck (4, Upper Lobe, 1 adult male)
Red-tailed Hawk (1)
Rock Pigeon
Mourning Dove
Red-bellied Woodpecker
