April 5 - Central Park

This morning was my first 2018 spring Thursday morning AMNH walk in Central Park. What a difference a day makes. Compared to yesterday's relatively warm, but very foggy weather today was bright, blue skies and cool temperatures - some of the leftover rain pools were skimmed over with ice and Evelyn Huang was sharing out hand-warmers with other participants! Despite the cool temperatures we did well with birds. We found a total of 32 species with the feeders, not surprisingly, being the most active area. The total list is below.

Canada Goose - 8 (the Lake)
Mallard - 6
Northern Shoveler - 15 (the Lake)
Double-crested Cormorant - 1 (the Lake)
