Central Park, May 2nd

Intermittent drizzle and heavy overcast early in the day cleared to sunny conditions late in the day before more rain spread in overnight. As I was packing up the car to drive into NYC there were Red-eyed Vireo and Black-and-white Warbler in my yard. Garrett Mountain had a fallout day, whereas Central Park merely had a good one. First of season birds for me included Great Crested Flycatcher, Black-throated Green and Magnolia Warblers, Scarlet Tanager and White-crowned Sparrow. 14 species of warbler was probably a little under what I should have achieved, but numbers were fairly good.
