Couch’s Kingbird at Abingdon Square

It has been an exciting time for NYC birdwatchers and for me. A Couch’s Kingbird has been in the West Village for about 8 weeks now. Initially it was seen by a non-birder who eventually told a birder who identified it. The news broke on 12/25/2014. I photographed it diving for insects near the wall on the corner of Bank and Hudson Streets, Abingdon Square, Saturday 12/29/2014.

On Monday, 12/29/2014 I was interviewed by Meg Baker of CBS2 News as a representative for The Linnaean Society of New York ( – I am the webmaster).

    I like the pic of the bird caught in flight. It seems to be twisting in air, perhaps to catch a insect. As of yesterday we hear that the bird is still surviving the cold.
