Beause of work commitments, I got in to Central Park later than the last two mornings and for a shorter time. It seemed much queter than the last two mornings, but still with a variety of birds around. I had forty-one species with a dozen warblers. I missed the Mourning Warbler that was heard by Roger Pasquier at the Point in the morning and then seen by many in the afternoon. My personal best bird was a female Cape May Warbler on the Point. From a listing standpoint, I did pick up one new bird for the year - I heard and finally saw Blackpoll Warbler. There also seemed to be lots of Scarlet tanagers around. Yellow-rumped Warblers were definitely in much lower abundance than a few days ago. My total list is below.
Gadwall (male on Turtle Pond)
Eastern Kingbird (Turtle Pond)
Barn Swallow (2-3; Turtle Pond)
Worm-eating Warbler (male singing; Tupelo)
Cape May Warbler (female; the Point)
Black-throated Blue Warbler
Black-throated Green Warbler
Scarlet Tanager (indiividuals all around the Ramble)
[UPDATE: Realized I forgot Savannah Sparrow - added to the list.]
