Another great day in the Park.  The Juncos were "numero uno" of the sparrows sps recorded for the areas visited.  Two Merlin were seen perched on a leafless tree in the Nethermead.  And the last of the warbler sps are ready to leave the Big Apple: 3 Myrtle (aka yellow-rumped).  Among the sparrows I saw at the ballfields area, 1 White-crowned (see pictures below).
