Inspired by Alan D.--and by the cool weather--I ventured into misty/drizzly Bryant Park. As is so often the case for about nine months a year, the dominant migrant was Common Yellowthroat, with at least five seen feasting on the bug-rich plantings. One was a male in full plumage, another a young male, but the other three were in more nondescript plumage, making my ongoing study of warbler gender ratios in the small urban parks harder to pursue. Also noted: three catbirds, an (unexpected?) immature White-throated Sparrow, and a robust male twelve-spotted skimmer dragonfly.
