Central Park, Before School

Manhattan, NYC

sunny 15 °F

Yesterday before school I walked around Central Park since I knew I wouldn’t be getting any birding in last weekend or this coming one due to friends and family. Though it turned out to be a fairly quiet morning, it was a beautiful, albeit chilly, start to the day at the Central Park Reservoir:

WHITE-BREASTED NUTHATCH:

Seeing this GRAY CATBIRD was a treat as this species can be quite scarce during the winter. Another somewhat more uncommmon species (for this time of year) I found was an EASTERN TOWHEE which evaded any photographs.

And the gorgeous male:

Bird-of-the-day to the Gray Catbird with runner-up to the Eastern Towhee. Stay tuned, in two weekends I will probably adventure out to Long Island again in search of more life birds!

Good birding,
Henry
