April 18 - Central Park

Once again it felt more like February or early-March at the start (9:00 am) of my Wednesday AMNH bird walk. It was mostly gray and cool, but by about half way through the walk the sun started to break through. It looked as if we were not going to have any warblers this morning, but at the end of the walk we finally picked up two - a Palm Warbler at Oak Bridge on the Upper Lobe and a Louisiana Waterthrush on the stream by Triplets Bridge. We ended the walk with 31 species, but there was nothing remarkable on the list.
