November 6 - Central Park - waterfowl

This morning was my last AMNH Central Park bird walk of the fall - dubbed the "Papal Walk" because it was a make-up walk for the Friday that most of the park was closed during the Pope's visit. For this last walk we headed up to the reservoir to check out the increasing variety of waterfowl the late fall brings to the park we were not disappointed. The list follows.

Canada Goose (2, the Lake)
Gadwall (at least 20, Reservoir)
American Black Duck (2, Turtle Pond)
Northern Shoveler (many on Reservoir)
Bufflehead (3, Reservoir)
Hooded Merganser (4, Reservoir)
Ruddy Duck (many, Reservoir)
