Searching for an Evening in the Morning

Riverside Park, NYC

all seasons in one day 42 °F

This morning before school, I was hoping to see the Evening Grosbeak that has been lingering in Riverside Park no more than a block away from my home here in NYC, the Manhattan School of Music. I started off the day with a nice male NORTHERN CARDINAL. A non-photographed bird that was cool to hear also was a CAROLINA WREN.

Then, I found it!!!! This EVENING GROSBEAK, my first of the year, allowed for an amazing photo shoot just merely feet away from me:

Bird-of-the-day to the wonderful Evening Grosbeak with runner-up to the Carolina Wren! A wonderful morning of photography! Stay tuned, because on Saturday I am headed out to Long Island again, and I will have to pick whether I would rather chase a Barnacle Goose or some continuing Black-legged Kittiwakes — exciting times ahead!

Good birding,
Henry
