Pat Pollock reports today  [10/8/13] from The Ramble and The Pinetum:

We had a sap-ladden Locust tree in the fenced in lawn just north of Tripletts Bridge close to the midwest fence   - lots of Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers and Tennessee  & Cape May Warblers in addition to other warblers:  Black & White, Northern Parula, Magnolia & No. Waterthrush @ Triplett's Bridge.  I had 10 warblers in various locations:  Yellow-rumped Warbler in Pinetum, Palm W. near Polish Statue, Ovenbird west edge of park on our way out, Common Yellowthroats in a few locations.|
Pinetum:  very pale imm. White-crowned Sparrow

Maintenance Field:
2 Indigo Buntings (f)

(Note:  others had Kingfisher @ Oak Bridge & Great Blue Heron, Cuckoo near Tupelo tree.  I never got to Strawberry Field but Richard's group said it was very productive:  Lincoln Sp., Blk-thr. Green & Blue W's are among the birds I heard of)|
