April 10 - Central Park

A beautiful early spring morning for my Wednesday AMNH bird walk in Central Park. Blue skies, scattered fluffy clouds, but still a cool breeze from the north and temperature around 50 when we started. The bird of the morning was undoubtedly the Great Horned Owl being chased all around the Ramble by a mob of Blue Jays. In the Ramble we did not have any warblers, but a few of us did see two bright Pine Warblers on the lawn in front of the Museum after we left the park. The full list of 39 species is below.
