Cedar Waxwings, Ramble

Lenore Swenson’s walk in the Central Park Ramble had 48 species including 10 warblers. It was a calm, humid morning with humidity near 100% and some early fog.

There was good species variety though somewhat lower abundance, perhaps due to the wet conditions from early morning rain. The complete species list should look much like yesterday’s.

Highlights: Pied-billed Grebe, once again on  Turtle Pond; Scarlet Tanager; Rose-breasted Grosbeak; a flock of young Cedar Waxwings in Maintenance Meadow; Ruby-crowned Kinglet; Ruby-throated Hummingbird at the Oven; Wood Thrush; and Pine Warbler.
