April 27 - Central Park

Hooray! Hooray! Hooray! My Thursday AMNH bird walk group gets to cheer for three things today. 1) It didn't rain! 2) The Ramble paths were finally open! 3) There were finally some birds around! Now the small print - it wasn't raining, but it was very gray and foggy so visibility was not good. And, yes there were more birds around than any day so far this spring, but because of the difficult visibility conditions many were frustratingly hard to identify as just silhouettes in the tops of the trees. There were lots of Yellow-rumped Warblers all through the Ramble. Mixed in were a variety of other birds. Unfortunately there was no sign of the Barred Owl from yesterday.
