My last official AMNH Wednesday bird walk in Central park started out cool and sunny, but over the course of two hours became mostly cloudy and cooler. Birds were somewhat scarce too. We found only 33 species with a dozen warblers from 7 - 9 am. There were at least three Northern Waterthrushs around Hernshead when we started - two calling nearby and a third walking along the shoreline south of Hernshead. Another highlight was a lovely male Chestnut-sided Warbler on the south side of Turtle pond. The complete list is below.
Gadwall (pair; Turtle Pond)
Eastern Kingbird (Turtle Pond)
Black-throated Blue Warbler
Yellow-rumped Warbler (2-3; Maintenance Meadow; getting late for this species)
Wilson's Warbler (s. side turtle Pond)
