Black & White Birds – CB&W

There are only a few of my bird photographs that translate well into black and white with some work in Photoshop. This group will be included in the Linnaean Society of New York‘s 2018-2019 Program which I am putting together now for September. I create their website and printed program in B&W — layout not content.

Seaside

I saw a life bird, a Seaside Sparrow, yesterday in Central Park at the southeast corner of The Pond–of all places. It isn’t the first time I’ve seen one, but it is the first time I am willing to count it as the other times I only caught a fleeting glimpse. This bird is a little off course.

The Cherries, etc. are finally in bloom.

The Barn owl is still there.
