Small flycatcher with stout body shape and bold whitish wingbars, thin whitish eyering, gray upperparts, whitish underparts, medium contrast between face and neck, mid-length primaries; boldness of eyering and rounded crown suggest that this was an Alder Flycatcher, perhaps the one reported calling very nearby at the Upper Lobe yesterday

FOY - quite probably two, though I can’t confirm this - in patch of woods just north of Azalea Pond, working dead leaves as Worm-eating does

1
Golden-winged Warbler

FOY and my first in Central Park and New York County - female first seen at Laupot Bridge and then moving east towards Azalea Pond, where it foraged in dead leaves hanging from trees in Worm-eating style - grayish warbler with dark dusky gray mask and throat, bright golden wingbars, hint of a golden cap. Possibly continuing? A female Golden-winged Warbler was in the immediate vicinity (Upper Lobe) last Wednesday, August 15. Given this species’ rarity as a migrant through New York City, and the fact that the two days of Golden-wingmed Warbler presence involved a female in the northwest Ramble, it is tempting to assume the same bird has been in the park undetected from Thursday to yesterday. Thanks to Jhonny for finding the bird this morning and reporting it, and for refinding it later and staying on it
