Just checked Bobbi's list from the walk and want to add a few species I got at the north end of the park Tuesday morning.
There was a Cape May at the top of the rise on the path going up to Rose Garden from Grand Army Plaza. A Worm eater in the Vale north end behind the benches next to stairs and a Scarlet Tanager (yellow) just after the wood play area in Nellie's lawn going toward the Pass Eagle statue. A juvenile Rose-Breasted Grosbeak, a Chestnut sided warbler and some flycatchers Empidonax over the dead end of the old horse path stopping under the road opposite the mulch pile area.
