NADIR SOUIRGI writes this morning (5/15/13). via ebirdsNYC:
A nice influx of migrants arrived last night into the North Woods of Central Park. In the 45 or so minutes I had to bird before work, 17 species of warbler including Cape May, Blackburnian, and Wilson's were seen/heard. Good numbers of other expected migrants like Scarlett Tanager, Rose-breasted Grosbeak and Red-eyed Vireo and an apparently late, according to eBird, Red-breasted Nuthatch.

Happy birding,

ANDERS PELTOMAA writes a few minutes earlier:

Hi all,
This morning a minor convention of Cape May Warblers was to be seen at the lower Lobe (Wagner Cove) and at the Point a male Mourning Warbler (found by Al Levantin) put on quite a show.
