Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City - Friday, Sept. 15th

All six northeastern-breeding species of Vireo were found in Central Park on 
Friday, that of course including Philadelphia Vireo, of which several were 
present including one photographed and seen by a number of observers at The 
Loch in the parks north end.  Also present were many Red-eyed, and some 
Warbling, as well as White-eyed, Yellow-throated, and Blue-headed Vireos for 
the park overall.  A few Worm-eating Warblers were again seen, one or more by 
many observers, and other warblers present included Bay-breasted in the 
multiple, also multiple Palm as well, as Mourning and others in varying 
numbers.  N. Parula was among the more numerous of warbler species.  

However besides Central Park, many other locations of the same county which 
include Manhattans Inwood Hill, Fort Tryon, Highbridge, Fort Washington, 
Riverside, Carl Schurz, Bryant, Union Square, Madison Square, Battery, Corlears 
Hook, and still-more parks, and also Randalls Island and Governors Island in 
the same county, all had excellent migrant sightings on the day.  The 
non-profit Linnaean Society of New York had a very successful guided walk at 
Governors Island on Friday with many migrants.  More on county-wide birds at a 
future date.

Good birding to all,

Tom Fiore
