April 19 - Central Park (afternoon)

At lunchtime I went back into Central Park to make another attempt to see the Yellow-throated Warbler I had chased with Paul's group in the morning. This time I was successful. A birder said she had seen the bird high in a tree a few minutes earlier, but there was no sign of it now. Over the next ten minutes or so other birders arrived also looking for the bird. Word was the warbler had also been seen south of the 86th Street transverse. We all stood around watching and talking. Suddenly, I saw a bird flying in over the transverse from the south. I raised my binoculars and watched it fly in, then yelled to everyone it was the Yellow-throated. It was a bit distant for my camera, but I did get some recognizable photos.
