On Friday, since my family was in town, I guided them around Central Park for a morning of birding!
We started off the day with a PINE WARBLER:
My Dad offered to take a photo of the three of us in front of a beautiful flowering tree:
BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON at Turtle Pond:
DOWNY WOODPECKER at his nesting hole. I think he was feeding his young:
NORTHERN FLICKER — look at those beautiful undertail coverts!
EASTERN TOWHEE male:
And the female:
Then, I checked the puddle where I had the LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH the other day, and sure enough, there it was! Too cool!
Here is a huge American Bullfrog I saw in the Central Park Ramble:
And a beautiful WHITE-THROATED SPARROW:
Another solid day of birding, and it will get even better from here! So nice to spend the morning with my family, too. Bird-of-the-day to the Louisiana Waterthrush with runner-up to the Black-crowned Night-Heron.
