Brown Thrasher

Under cloudy skies and after early morning drizzle, Lenore led today’s walk in the Central Park Ramble. We had 35 total species including six warblers.

Maintenance Meadow provided the greatest variety of good birds, including an unusually large number of Red-eyed Vireos, at least five. The most common warbler again was the American Redstart, seen at least ten times all over the Ramble. We are starting to see Black-throated Blue Warblers, too — a couple today.
