Central Park, Hempstead Lake State Park, Jones Beach: Orchard Oriole, Worm Eating Warbler, Yellow Throated Vireo

After a slow start at Strawberry Fields, things picked up in the ramble.  I personally had 13 warblers, other birders saw additional types. In the ramble I saw: Northern Waterthrush, Ovenbird, Palm, Yellow, Common Yellowthroat, Blue Winged, Northern Parula,  Blackburnian, Nashville, Yellow Rumped, good looks at a female Cape May, Black and White, and Chestnut Sided.  Also saw Warbling and Blue Headed Vireos, Veery, Baltimore and Orchard Orioles (male and immature male).

I saw a report of a Worm Eating Warbler at Hempstead Lake SP so headed back to Long Island ASAP.  With the help of some other birders I got good looks at it as well as a Blackburnian Warbler, Waterthrush sp,, Northern Parula and Yellow Throated Vireo.

Also did the obligatory check by Jones Beach - only highlight was about a dozen Piping Plovers.

3 lifers!
