A few signs of spring have appeared on the High Line. Cherries just starting; and Crocci and Witch Hazel are in full swing. It was amusing to watch the Mockingbirds hopping around a foot away from all the people walking by. A lady waved her cane at them and they didn’t even blink.
We went to Central Park on Saturday 2/12/2018 to do a bit of bird watching. We joined a group of friends on a Linnaean Society of New York birding trip. The highlights were a a Sharp-shinned and Cooper’s Hawk. It was a mild, gray, wet day. We saw 33 species of birds.
