Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City - Thursday, April 28th:
The multi-hundreds of birders, both in guided walks given by non-profit 
groups/org’s., and seen by numerous independent birders (and photographers) 
came back with at least 21 warbler species on the day in Central Park alone.  A 
list of those species is below.  All of the warblers were surely enjoyed by 
their many observers.  A male Blackburnian Warbler seen by many next to the 
reservoir was an obvious highlight.
Worm-eating Warbler
Louisiana Waterthrush
Northern Waterthrush
Blue-winged Warbler
Black-and-white Warbler
Orange-crowned Warbler
Nashville Warbler
Common Yellowthroat
American Redstart
Cape May Warbler
Northern Parula
Magnolia Warbler
Blackburnian Warbler
Yellow Warbler
Black-throated Blue Warbler
Palm Warbler
Pine Warbler
[Myrtle] Warbler
Prairie Warbler
Black-throated Green Warbler
Of the above at least 18 species were found in the Ramble area and nearby 
vicinity, while many of the species were also found in the park’s north end, 
and also in some relatively less-birded locations all around the park.
Least Flycatcher was possibly a first of the year for the county on Thursday. 4 
Vireo species were again present, including Yellow-throated, White-eyed 
(lingering in the Ramble), Warbling, and Blue-headed Vireos.  Three Catharus 
type thrush species have continued: Veery, Wood Thrush, and still a number of 
Hermit Thrush.
Some recent finds include an Eastern Bluebird nicely photographed on 4/27 in 
Central Park by M. Cohn; photo is archived in the Macaulay Library.  Widening 
the county-circle a bit, a Bonaparte’s Gull was confirmed for The Battery 
(south end of Manhattan) on Monday, 4/25. Seven Greater Yellowlegs were noted 
from Inwood Hill Park (north end of Manhattan) on Tues., 4/26, and one of the 
same species was reported from Governors Island on Wed., 4/27.
Many, many other migrants have been noted all around the county. Thanks to the 
many finders and observers of some of the above-noted.
Good birding to all,
Tom Fiore
N.Y. City
