Mary Beth Kooper @imarybethnyc discovered a BARN OWL near the Boathouse early 
in this morning (6:47AM), tweeting her discovery to @BirdCentralPark. As David 
Barret pointed out, the most recent previous report of Barn Owl in Central Park 
was in January of 2004. As of 3:40pm the Barn Owl had not been relocated.

Al Levitan reported a Louisiana Waterthrush at Bow Bridge.

We received word that the Peregrine Falcons on Central Park West have 4 eggs in 
the nest.

Sandra Critelli, birding around the 59th Street Pond at lunchtime, reported 3 
Black-crowned Night-Herons, 3 Golden-crowned Kinglets, a Brown-headed Cowbird, 
and two Hermit Thrushes (not included in the list above).
