September 9 - Central Park - still warm, but a few birds

This morning was the first of my Wednesday morning AMNH bird walks in Central park for the Fall. It was a bit cooler than yesterday morning, but still warm and quite humid. The winds were from the south overnight, so it was not a good night for migration. Despite that we did manage to find a few birds. The total list of 36 species is below. [When I first posted this list I accidentally left off a few species - Thanks to Lenore Swenson for the heads-up.]
