College!

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!

DOUBLE-CRESTED CORMORANTS:

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,
Henry
