Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City (just south of the C.P. reservoir)

Good Friday, 19 April, 2019 -

An occasionally singing and calling Yellow-throated Warbler has been along the 
Central Park bridle path adjacent to the south side of the reservoir; about 
mid-way along the path, reasonably obvious as it moves about in nearly-bare 
trees.  The Central Park (NYPD) Police Precinct station house is not far away, 
along the 86th Street Transverse. (The warbler has been immediately north of 
that in treees along the bridle path.  An area where the species has turned up 
in other years in spring.  This is at least the 4th Yellow-throated Warbler to 
appear in N.Y. City so far this spring, and presumed the first-of-spring for 
Manhattan & New York County.

Otherwise a fair amount of migration took place over Thursday night, & some is 
ongoing Friday; also a lot of migrants went past Manhattan, & past NYC to 
points north, on generally fair skies & strong southerly winds overnight and 
into the daylight hours.

good luck if you go,

Tom Fiore
