Though overall migrant abundance was lower than expected today, we did report five Yellow-throated Warblers so far.
@BirdCentralPark on Twitter relayed the first two, from Tony Gazso (with photo) at the Upper Lobe in Central Park at 7:27 am, a singing male that had moved on by 7:45, and from Matthew Rymkiewicz, also in Central Park, between the Pool and the Balancing Rock north of it. It is possible that the first bird quickly flew north to the second location. Gus Keri reported Yellow-throated Warbler at Owl's Head Park in Brooklyn at 10:29 am through @BirdBrklyn on Twitter with photos. Patrick Horan reported one (with photos) from Pelham Bay Park at 12:55 pm on @BirdBronx on Twitter. For directions to it, see his posts on https://twitter.com/BirdBronx Jeffrey Ward just reported the fifth, also from Pelham Bay Park in the small pines along the landfill -- again, see the above link.
