May 25 - Central Park

The last Thursday morning AMNH bird walk of the spring was done in a steady light rain. One brave soul joined me for the walk. We managed to find 24 species in the rain. We went from sheltered spot to sheltered spot, trying to stay as dry as we could. Our best bird was a nice view of a Great Crested Flycatcher seen from the Rustic Shelter on the western side of the Ramble. At one point we had both the Great Crested and a Baltimore Oriole in the same binocular field. I will post a cumulative bird list for the spring as soon as I compile it. Below is the final morning's list. I wish everyone a good summer. See you in the fall.
