Yesterday in the park and quick PS about the eggs

David Speiser, bird photographer extraordinary, sends photos of birds seen yesterday in Central Park, and writes:

Today was a slow migration day until I went to Sparrow Rocks in the afternoon. At least three Bay-breasted Warblers were present, as well as a beautiful male Blackburnian, Blackpoll, B&W, Magnolia , Black-throated Green and Red-eyed Vireo.

Red-eyed vireo [you can even see the red eye if you look closely.]

Also yesterday, I sent a note to Barbara Loucks at DEC asking for confirmation about the egg-removal. [ I haven't received a reply yet. [This is their busy season I'm sure.]
