At least several dozen birders got to see the HARRIS'S SPARROW at the south
end of the Central Park North Meadow, just west of the handball courts,
this afternoon.

The finder was Elizabeth Paredes, who quickly passed on the info to her
husband John Anturi (@jhonny_2003 on Twitter), a frequent contributor of
rare bird finds, photos, and videos on Manhattan Bird Alert, who passed the
info along to us.

A big thank you to them for getting us on this bird, an all-time first
documented occurrence for Central Park and all Manhattan! We will have more
photo and video coverage tonight (and tomorrow, if it shows up
again), @BirdCentralPark on Twitter:
