Rare bird in North Woods

Though this site has never functioned as a rare bird alert for readers, I'm passing along the following report received a few hours ago from Lloyd Spitalnik [] just to give you an idea of how quickly word gets out these days. If you have ever been mystified by locations such as The Loch, or the Wildflower Meadow, you will do well to click on the link and perhaps print out Alex Wilson's useful map of the North Woods for future reference.

Art LeMoine just reported seeing a Blue Grosbeak in Central Park's Wildflower Meadow located in the north end of the park. This is a very good bird in the park having only been seen a handful of times in the last 5 years. The bird was described as being brown (female/immature) and was in the SW corner. The Wildflower Meadow is adjacent to the Loch/Ravine. Here is a link to a map of the north end created by Alex Wilson
Good luck seeing this bird.

PS from MW: The itty bitty picture is Audubon's Blue Grosbeak.
