Central Park, Oct 2nd

Off a somewhat northerly wind, I took the 6:03am train into NYC in the hopes of a little migrant birding. A slow trickle at Strawberry Fields held a Canada Warbler, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Black-throated Green with some Towhees sounding off and a single fly-by Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. One Chimney Swift overhead. Most of the Ramble was quiet, but the Maintenance Field at times held a few warblers - Nashville being the best one. A White-eyed Vireo was found there, unusual for the park.

The Wild Turkey has lost a lot of feathers, and now looks thin, however I'm hoping that it's just going through prebasic molt and will look healthier again soon.
