October 21 - Central Park

The combination of sunrise well after 7 am and heavy clouds to the east made for a dim start to the Tuesday AMNH Central Park bird walk. Despite that we had a nice morning birding. As the sun got higher and the clouds cleared from the west (at least in the early morning) it turned into a lovely morning. The dominant bird was White-throated Sparrow with large numbers all through the Ramble.
