Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City - Saturday, 22 Sept., ‘18 On this final day of summer, 2018, a nightjar thought to be a Chuck-will’s-widow was found near the source of the Gill (just east) in the Ramble - this is also immediately east of the Azalea Pond. With some decent photos, a definitive identification might be coming. Many observers up to the 5 pm hour.
Also notable today, a (probably-continuing) male Cerulean Warbler, to the west of the Great Lawn & immediately north of the Delacorte Theater. As well as a wide variety of more-expected end-of-summer & start-of-fall migrants. Amonst these, a fairly high count of 2 Cuckoo species, with Yellow-billed outnumbering Black-billed, and seen in varioius sections of Central Park. good autumnal birding, Tom Fiore manhattan -- NYSbirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsWELCOME.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsRULES.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://email@example.com/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/NYSBirds-L 3) http://birding.aba.org/maillist/NY01 Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
