Alder Flycatcher at Hernshead

Starr Saphir gave a private birding walk this morning in Central Park during which she observed a calling Alder Flycatcher at Hernshead. (Had the bird not been calling, it could not have been reliably distinguished from a Willow Flycatcher).


  • Alder Flycatcher (calling, near Hernshead)
  • Wood Thrush (Evodia Field)
  • Yellow Warbler (Triplets Bridge)
  • Chestnut-sided Warbler (west of Maintenance Meadow restrooms)
  • American Redstart (Triplets Bridge)
  • Common Yellowthroat (female, Strawberry Field)
  • Ovenbird (Strawberry Field)
  • Northern Waterthrush (Strawberry Field)
  • Canada Warbler (west of Maintenance Meadow restrooms)

Join Starr tomorrow, Monday 20 August 2012, 7:30 AM at 81st and CPW for her first public birding walk of the fall season.
