Today's birds -- [second post of the day]

 Hooded Warbler--Central Park -- May 2, 2007,   Photo by DAVID SPEISER

Jeff Ritter of  Little Neck, NY just sent in a report on this morning's birds [via ebirdsnyc]:

Small numbers of migrants continued to appear in the Ramble this morning. The highlight for me was a singing HOODED WARBLER in the Evodia Field. Other warbler species that I observed included CANADA, AMERICAN REDSTART, BLACKPOLL, MAGNOLIA, NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH and NORTHERN PARULA (heard singing). Also, an apparent GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH (not vocal) and VEERY, ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAK, RED-EYED VIREO, CEDAR WAXWING, EASTERN WOOD PEWEE, GREAT-CRESTED FLYCATCHER and an Empidonax Flycatcher which I got only a brief look at.

Not the numbers of birds and variety of species that were present a week or so ago but satisfying birding nonetheless.
