Mourning Warbler

I went to the area known as Bunting Meadow hoping that the bird that had been previously reported just a few hours prior, would be out in the open and feeding actively. It was not. So, making sure that no other birders were around, and concentrating my effort at the top of the hill where it was last seen, I played some tape. Nothing dramatic occurred but I did get a response of about three or four chip notes, emanating from some very dense brush. They were not more than five feet away just on the other side of the fence and had tiny pale flowers. It sounded like the harsh chip of a Mourning Warbler to my ear. It was definitely not the chip note of any other more expected species like Common Yellow-throat typical of this habitat type. Generally, there was very little activity or bird sound in the area, save two flycatchers, a Gray Catbird, and a flyby Mourning Dove. All things considered, I think it is safe to say that the vocalization that I heard, was a Mourning Warbler, skulking as it will, on a drizzly afternoon in Central Park.
