The calm before the storm...

Central Park, NYC

overcast 68 °F

After seeing a report of a Blue Grosbeak at the Evodia Feeders in the Central Park Ramble, I knew I had to bird Central Park this afternoon upon finishing my humanities final exam.

Upon arriving, seeing this male BLACK-THROATED BLUE WARBLER was nice:

As was the male ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAK:

Although it was a quieter day and I failed to see the Blue Grosbeak because I soon got rained out, it was still nice to get out and enjoy the park after school. Bird-of-the-day to the Black-throated Blue Warbler.

Stay tuned — the title of this post comes from the fact that tomorrow is predicted to be possibly the best day of migration yet this year! There is MASSIVE movement of birds shown on the radar across the East Coast tonight. And the great news is that I don’t have class until 4pm!

Good birding,
Henry
