Central Park Birds

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.

      Central Park is world famous for being on the Atlantic flyway. Birders travel here from all over to see birds during migration.

    Texas friends with gardens and water features often see these warblers during migration, but here on the coast I rarely see them. They’re beautiful birds, although the robins are first in my affections.

      Robins are fun. I love the warblers in Spring. They are colorful and their journeys are amazing. Pity you are not on the flyway.
