September 10 - Central Park - a bit wet

My first Thursday morning AMNH Central Park bird walk for the fall was a bit damp - actually it was just plain wet. For more than half the two hour walk there was a steady light rain, though there were clearer areas visible to the east. At one point we actually had some fairly bright sunshine while it continued to rain! Six intrepid birders met me at 7 am and did the whole two hours with me. We were actually rewarded with a few nice birds. The list follows.

Gadwall (on Turtle Pond)
Solitary Sandpiper (2, on rocks below Belvedere Castle, south side Turtle Pond)
Rock Pigeon
Mourning Dove
Chimney Swift (about 20, flying north over Belvedere)
Blue Jay
White-breasted Nuthatch
Veery (south of feeders)
American Robin
Gray Catbird
European Starling
Cedar Waxwing (along Gill)
Northern Parula (along Gill)
American Redstart
Common Yellowthroat
Scarlet Tanager (2, along Gill)
Eastern Towhee (male, south of feeders)
Northern Cardinal
Rose-breasted Grosbeak (1, along Gill)
Common Grackle
Baltimore Oriole (south of Gill)
House Sparrow
