Central Park after the deluge, 4/17

Saturday ended amidst a storm of epic proportions, which cleared out too late to provide much of an overnight migration. So while I traveled into Central Park on Sunday I had to work hard to see any migrants at all. I came up with a single drab female Pine Warbler for the new world warbler list, although it was perfect habitat for Waterthrushes or Rusty Blackbird given the amount of water in the Ramble. Most interesting bird for me was an immature Sharp-shinned Hawk sitting in the Evodia Field, which showed little interest in making a pass at the American Goldfinches working a way at the last remaining feeder.
