April 12 - Central Park

Finally, a spring migration morning! It wasn't spectacular, but at least there were some birds. My AMNH Thursday morning group found 40 species, and for the first time this spring - more than one warbler species. Near the end of the walk we heard that yesterday's Barn Owl had been found again. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to go look for it. One of the highlights was the first Blue-headed Vireo of the year. The full list of birds is below, after a picture of some Blood Root in bloom to prove that it is finally spring!
