Bryant Park: Yesterday I passed along a report of a Connecticut Warbler at 
Bryant Park. The bird turned out to be first-spring female Mourning Warbler, 
another female and at least one male Mourning Warbler were also seen there 
Friday. This morning I was only able to find one female Mourning Warbler, 
distinguished by a large whitish patch on the throat, which was not one of the 
females I saw Friday. Other Bryant Park birds today: Eastern Towhee, Common 
Yellowthroat (2 singing males), Swamp Sparrow, Song Sparrow, White-throated 
Sparrow (at least 5), Gray Catbird (4).
