Also on July 5, Jacob Drucker of Amherst, MA visited the Loch and Great Hill of Central Park. He sent the following report to eBirdsnyc, making it crystal clear that the Fall Migration is upon us.
... After last night's Northwest winds, an hour mostly in the Loch and part of the Great Hill in Central this morning turned up a nice array of things as well, namely several AMERICAN REDSTARTS (6+), NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH (2), BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER (1), RED-EYED VIREO (1), BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER (2), and WILLOW FLYCATCHER (2).
