The first set is from the Ravine and Butterfly Gardens in Central Park (map). A few of these gave me a bit of trouble to identify.
The second set of flowers are in the Conservatory Garden. I am stuck on the last two. Does anyone know what they are called?
A friend, Fritz, from the Butterfly Club in NYC helped me identify the red daisy like flower. It is Great Masterwort (Astrantia major ‘Rubra’).
I attended a field trip for winter birds led by Richard Z. for The Linnaean Society of New York on Saturday. The write-up for the trip is on the LSNY site that I manage and designed for the organization.
I had fun embellishing these images.
Two rarities were a partially leucistic Grackle and a young Red-headed Woodpecker.
No snow yet, but we did find some ice in Central Park last Sunday. I wish you all a happy winter season.
