April 29th was a good day for seeing migrating birds in Central Park. We went to the Great Hill, the Ravine and the Harlem Meer in the north end of the park. I enjoyed close up views of a busy Common Yellow-throat and the male Red-winged Blackbirds fighting over territory while the female was quietly making her nest. We ran into the famous Chris Cooper – we were both looking for the Hooded-warbler. I would have attended his talk at NYC Audubon but it was too expensive.
