May 11 - Central Park

What a difference a day makes! Yesterday morning was cool with a light northerly breeze. This morning was the same. However, yesterday there was great birding in the park, but this morning things were relatively quiet for my Thursday AMNH bird walk group. instead of yesterday's total of over fifty species, this morning we only found thirty-seven.A nice non-avian sighting was the lady's-slippers in bloom near Azalea Pond.
