April 25 - Central Park

Four intrepid participants braved the somewhat dismal weather forecast and met me for today's Wednesday AMNH bird walk in Central Park. The forecast was for rain and cool temperatures, but at 9:00 am the rain stopped and then pretty much held off until the walk ended at 11:00! I wish I could say that we were rewarded with some special bird for our efforts. Alas, though we had nice views of a couple of warblers, we did not find anything out of the ordinary. Our somewhat low list of 28 species is below.

Canada Goose
Red-tailed Hawk (1)
Herring Gull (3, overhead in the fog)
Rock Pigeon
Mourning Dove
Red-bellied Woodpecker (4)
Downy Woodpecker (2)
Northern Flicker (5)
Blue Jay
Ruby-crowned Kinglet (1)
Hermit Thrush (4, way down from last week when they were everywhere)
American Robin
Brown Thrasher (1, heard singing)
European Starling
Palm Warbler (2, the Point)
Yellow-rumped Warbler (2)
Eastern Towhee (3)
Song Sparrow (1)
White-throated Sparrow (fewer than in recent weeks)
Dark-eyed Junco (1)
Northern Cardinal
Red-winged Blackbird
Common Grackle
Brown-headed Cowbird (1, feeders)
