After some days of strong, favorable westerly winds, at least two western
vagrants were observed in Manhattan yesterday: the HARRIS'S SPARROW in
Central Park (as previously noted here) and a VARIED THRUSH. The latter was
a window-strike victim, found at 57th and Central Park West, and
immediately taken to the Wild Bird Fund on the Upper West Side.

Photo and comments on the find here:

If the bird recovers, it is possible that birders might get to see it
during or after its release. Usually these releases take place in Central
Park. Those interested should stay in touch with the Wild Bird Fund, and we
will do the same.
