Choose One

I plan to use one of these for a show to be judged in OPTIC2019 by B&H. I need to pick one by tomorrow and I am having trouble. I’d love to know which one you would you choose? HELP!

Results as of 3 pm EST 6/1/2019: Hermit Thrush won.
Flower, Hudson 2, Tulip leaves 1, Hermit Trhush 5, Scarlet Tanager 4, Yellowthroat 2, Yellowthroat female 1, Iris 2.

Thank you for taking the time to help me choose.

Hermits are In

Spring brings in the migrants. Lots of Chipping Sparrow, and Hermit Thrushes are starting to come in. It is a bit too early for large numbers of warblers.
Now that treatments at the Morrison Center in NYC are helping me to feel better I hope to visit the park more often. Last year I rarely went out.

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.
