The park was full of birds on this rainy Friday, but the Migration has peaked.

At least 20 species of warblers were noted in the park on Wednesday; there were also a few intriguing additional reports. Overall however, migrant diversity was down quite a bit from the preceding week's reports of so many.  By Friday, numbers were down a bit farther overall, for most migrants. 

This weather is most interesting and appears to be contributing to some migrants turning up well north of usual breeding areas, as well as the inland or onshore occurrences of some species mostly known as pelagics in SE NY.

Good birding,
