Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City

There were still many migrants about all day, but I was unable to re-find a few from Fri. morning's good diversity, notably no Blue Grosbeak, also no Indigo Buntings, and a couple of the warblers seen Friday went missing in my searches, while a Pine Warbler was added.  A fair addition for some species in my rounds at the north end, particularly more Ruby-crowned Kinglets, and a modest number of thrushes including Wood and Swainson's, for the most part.  Also still going strong were Red-eyed Vireo and I ran into more House Wrens than the day before. A Marsh Wren was again present but along the north shoreline of The Pool.

Tonight's and the next few nights chillier weather will bring a lot of fresh migration...

Good autumn birding,

Tom Fiore, Manhattan
