April 14 - Central Park - Deja vu all over again

Almost a repeat of yesterday morning for my Thursday AMNH bird walk in Central Park. Once again a bright, cool morning with blue skies. Unfortunately there were somewhat fewer birds in evidence than yesterday, perhaps a result of the slightly stronger northerly breeze. However, we were able to find yesterday's best bird, a Rusty Blackbird.
