April 6 - Central Park

After missing the first Wednesday AMNH Central Park bird walk last week because of jury duty, I got to start the Wednesday walks today. It felt more like a late winter walk than a spring walk. There were beautiful, blue, cloudless skies, but the temperature was at freezing when we started. Nevertheless. we found 28 species with a few spring birds.

Canada Goose
Double-crested Cormorant (1, flying around the Lake)
Black-crowned Night-Heron (1, west side of the Lake, north of Hernshead)
Rock Pigeon
Mourning Dove
Red-bellied Woodpecker
Downy Woodpecker
Northern Flicker
Blue Jay
American Crow (1)
Black-capped Chickadee (feeders)
Tufted Titmouse (singing birds in several places)
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher (I missed it, but Jon Hyman and Chuck McAlexander had one on the way out)
Hermit Thrush (2)
American Robin
European Starling
Pine Warbler (1, south side Turtle Pond)
Song Sparrow
White-throated Sparrow (singing birds throughout the Ramble)
Northern Cardinal
Red-winged Blackbird (calling male, Turtle Pond)
Common Grackle
House Finch (feeders)
American Goldfinch (feeders)
House Sparrow
