October 30 - Central Park - Red-headed Woodpecker

After the rainy weather and then clearing skies of the last two days, it was a stunning fall day for the Friday AMNH bird walk in Central Park. The highlights of the walk were the fall foliage and an immature Red-headed Woodpecker just north of the Oven in the Ramble. Perhaps the most spectacular tree was the Tupelo in the Tupelo Meadow.
