Central Park 9/11

Migration on this 9/11 was reminiscent of the other 9/11 with clear skies and a cool start off a northwestern wind - pretty good although not yet maximal in terms of diversity. This one lacked the attendant disaster, thank God. I stayed in Strawberry Fields much of the time, reflecting the steady volume there. At one point I had Blackpoll, Blackburnian and Bay-breasted in one small part of a tree. Later on I added Cape May, shortly after a Bald Eagle flew past. I only added a couple more warbler species elsewhere.
