May 8 - Central Park - quieter

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)
Double-crested Cormorant
Red-tailed Hawk
