April 27 - Central Park - finally warblers!

Cool and overcast for my Wednesday AMNH Central Park bird walk group. But finally warblers are in. We had ten species of warblers and I heard about at least another six species we didn't see. Whenever you see a male Blackburnian Warbler it is a good morning and we had a fairly cooperative bird near the Azalea Pond. Probably the bird I was most surprised to see was a Least Flycatcher on the Point. It is a bit early, but certainly not record early. Below is a poor, blurry picture of the bird.
