The weather was beautiful for my Thursday morning AMNH bird walk in Central Park. However, the birding was much quieter than yesterday morning. I could tell from the start at Hernshead that there were many fewer birds around. One amusing thing was that when we got up to the Belvedere Castle there was an Eastern Kingbird perched on the same light in exactly the same spot as where I photographed it yesterday (see yesterday's post) - I assume it was the same bird. Though we only had a dozen warblers today, one was a species that had eluded me so far this spring. We found two Prairie Warblers, one on the south side of Turtle Pond and one near Azalea Pond. Our total ofr the two hour walk was 38 species. The full list is below.
