29 May 2012: Short North End Walk

Today’s walk in the Central Park North End was shortened to two hours on account of unusually hot and humid (dew point over 70) conditions, which most likely contributed to less bird activity. We had 35 bird species including three warblers (Northern Parula, Magnolia, and Common Yellowthroat).


At the south end of the Loch, Starr heard an Orchard Oriole. It may have provided a brief glimpse to some viewers, but it was very high in the trees.

In the Wildflower Meadow, Tom found an empid that turned out to be a Least Flycatcher.
