The NYC Audubon Wednesday Morning  Birding group recorded 45 species in a fairly birdie Central Park. The highlights were 9 warbler species (Parula, BT Blue, Yel-rump, Pine, Palm, B&W, Redstart, N.Waterthrush, C.Yellowthroat), many Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, good numbers of Chipping Sparrows and White-throated Sparrows, and 5 Winter Wrens, The best spot for warblers was the area just west of Triplets Bridge which had some trees opened up by Sapsuckers.
