Central Park, Sept 30th

Slow migration day off a west wind and lower temperatures. Although there were quite a few Brown Thrashers in Strawberry Fields there were very few other migrants. The most numerous warbler was Common Yellowthroat. A remarkable 25 Gadwalls in a variety of plumage (some coming out of eclipse, some in full breeding) were around the island at Turtle Pond, which offered a few photo ops.
