October 29 - Central Park - clearing skies

Yesterday morning my AMNH bird walk group got out of Central Park just before the rains started. Today we did the walk under clearing skies. I think the threat of rain did deter a number of participants so I only had one person for the last Thursday morning walk of the season. As on yesterday's walk, we headed up to the reservoir since it was still dark in the Ramble even though the skies were starting to clear. We had pretty much the same waterfowl as yesterday. Overall our list was smaller than yesterday since we never did make it down into the Ramble. Instead we went out of the park via Tanner's Spring, but landbirds were relatively scarce. The morning's list follows.

Canada Goose
Wood Duck (1, male, Turtle Pond)
Gadwall (Reservoir)
Northern Shoveler (Reservoir)
Bufflehead (1, male, Reservoir)
Ruddy Duck (Reservoir)
Double-crested Cormorant (Reservoir)
Red-tailed Hawk (1)
Ring-billed Gull
Herring Gull
Great Black-backed Gull
Rock Pigeon
Mourning Dove
Northern Flicker
Blue Jay
Hermit Thrush
American Robin
European Starling
Song Sparrow
White-throated Sparrow
House Sparrow
