A Travellerspoint blog


New York, NY

all seasons in one day 96 °F

I have officially started school as a freshman at the Manhattan School of Music! My major is classical vocal performance, and I am a bass-baritone voice type.

Orientation week was a big success, which included a cruise that passed the Statue of Liberty:

And today, a fun trip to Coney Island Amusement Park & Beach. I even saw a few birds!


HERRING GULLS and my bird-of-the-day, the GREAT BLACK-BACKED GULL in the center:

Two other interesting species seen this week that evaded photography included my first migrant warbler, a BLACK-AND-WHITE which was near the 9-11 Memorial, and a city-hunting PEREGRINE FALCON. Stay tuned, on saturday I will hopefully document my first of probably regular episodes of birding Central Park!

Good birding,

Nice Henry! Love the Statue of Liberty photo. Perhaps some day I’ll get out that way to see it, you and the birds in Central Park!
Bird On!
