Dickcissel - May 10th 2008 - Central Park

Along with a nice list of migrants - Cape Mays singing at Bow Bridge, Wilson's Warbler at the Lower Lobe - came news of a very exciting find. Leslie Beebe et al had discovered an adult male Dickcissel at Falconer's Hill. Dickcissels turn up in fall each year, particularly on Long Island, but spring Dickcissels are much rarer, especially in Central Park. This particular male was a little spooky but eventually everyone got decent looks at it, and it attracted a lot of attention.
