On Sunday 109 participants took to Central Park, in practically balmy
weather compared to last year, for 120th CBC. They counted 5,148 birds of
57 species. Despite some notable misses, for example Black-capped Chickadee
and Red-winged Blackbird (a count week bird), both the total number of
birds and species total falls well within the 20-year average for the park.
See preliminary count results below.

Other counts for the New Jersey Lower Hudson count circle took place at
Governor's Island, Randall's Island, Riverside Park, Inwood Hill Park,
Stuyvesant Town & Cove, East River & Corlear's Hook Parks, Bryant Park,
Tompkins Square Park, Washington Square Park, Harlem area parks Lower
Manhattan, and throughout Hudson and Bergen County. Preliminary reports
also indicate four Nashville Warblers were seen on counts in Upper
Manhattan, which is a record for the count circle.

The final results for Central Park and the entire NJLH circle will be
available at nycaudubon.org after count week ends!
