Central Park Lark

I went to the park to find a rare Lark Sparrow that was reported. I found it but didn’t get a clear shot. At least I have blurry ones for my records. The wren was more obliging.

Two Days in Central Park

The first day we didn’t find many birds. The forecast improved for the second day and there were many migrant warblers in the park. A few of these images are not very good that is because this post is to document many of the birds I saw. I left out the Chestnut-sided Warbler – that one was totally out of focus. Can’t win ’em all.

Central Park with LSNY

The first Central Park walk with The Linnaean Society of New York took place on 9/8/2020. I managed a few shots wile we looked for birds. Check out their site for upcoming programs and field trips.

Butterflies and Skippers

We I stopped for a bite at the Hidden Oak Cafe in the Manor House at Bayard Cutting Arboretum. The surrounding gardens were full of butterflies and skippers (labeled to the best of my ability – corrections appreciated):

Arboretum and More

In Bayard Cutting Arboretum, LI, NY, we walked by the shore and visited the farm. We we bought some of their fresh eggs.

A short drive away is Heckscher State Park. We didn’t stay long there.

To cap off the day, we ate dinner at the Snapper Inn. It was very grand and lovely to eating out by the water.
