Central Park (Manhattan, N.Y. City) - Tuesday, April 19th:

The male Prothonotary Warbler was continuing in the n. end of Central Park, but 
had moved (back) up to the “Pool” for at least the morning - which is the pond 
nearest to bewteen W. 100th & W. 103rd Streets from Central Park West; also in 
the area in the morning have been a male Hooded Warbler, and in the n. end more 
generally, at least 5 additional spp. of warblers as well as other typical 
migrants.  Rusty Blackbird is also present in the n. end of the park, and most 
or all of the above were noted by participants in the (not-for-profit) 
bird-walk on behalf of the Linnaean Society of New York (and by many additional 
observers, as well).  Should the male Prothonotary not be seen (again) by the 
“Pool”, it will be worth checking all of the Loch, immediately east (and 
downstream) from the Pool, which flows thru that area also known as “the 

A female-plumaged Hooded Merganser was lingering again at the C.P. reservoir, 
and I neglected to note that a small no. of Ruddy Ducks also continue there (as 
well as the 2 of the latter, at The Meer in the park’s n.-e. corner) - these 
all again seen Tuesday, as was American Coot, Buffleheads, and some other birds 
on the reservoir.  And at least 3 drake Wood Ducks are continuing in the park 
as well, as are some N. Shovelers, and etc. A different weather-bag for 
Tuesday, and rather changeable through the day.

Good birding to all,

Tom Fiore
