Not a very birdy day but still good because I got to see some of my freinds during the Linnaean NY field trip.
Tuesday was a tremendous day for Fall warblers, thrushes and other migrants. I went with the Linnaean NY group then later left them and sat by some jewelweed and watched a hummer feed. The first three have replaced backgrounds.
Assorted plants form the lovely little garden on Greenwich Street and 6th Avenue. I included a reworked Trillium from Central Park. The first three have replaced backgrounds.
Classic doors with stoops (from the Dutch word stoep) or stairs. In New York many still call them stoops. When the Dutch colonists settled in New York in the 1600s they added this style of stairs to rows of apartments called tenements and brownstones. The second photograph has the now closed historic Fedora Restaurant in the basement.

First of the season Tuesday morning Central Park trip with Linnaean NY. No time for me to photograph much because we were running around looking for things like Yellow-billed Cuckoos.
I haven’t been to Central Park in quite a while. We went there on Saturday, September 4 for a morning walk. It was so nice to see so many of my birding friends there. There wasn’t a large number of birds, but the few I found where nice ones. The best was a humming bird and a Bay-breasted Warbler.
I spent a few hours today adding new backgrounds to these in Photoshop.
