Second of May Birds

I saw these birds on the same day as the Red-headed Woodpecker (previous post) in the Ramble, Central Park, NYC. The first one is a composite I created of a bird in a series—like a mini movie left to right. Click on the image to view larger.

    I save the top photo to my Pinterest board called “Birds”–always delightful to watch and so hard to photograph!

      I am lucky that NYC is on the Atlantic migratory flyway. Be fun to show you some hot spots.

    All of these in one day! Spring in Central Park has definitely begun. Great photos, Sherry; the grosbeak is a special delight. I really like your move-action composite of the kinglet, it’s unique.

    Such fun! Those (composed) Kinglets who apparently have yet to grow their red crowns, are simply adorable!

      Red crown pops up, it’s hidden under feathers, when a male is displaying. 🙂
