New York Bryant Park Bird Walk...

Last Thursday, I filled in for a NYC Audubon naturalist, by leading a bird walk at Bryant Park NY. The time of the walk was surprisingly late 5:00 p.m. and I was unsure what we would find. To add to the time, the park was filled with occupants - often not the best atmosphere for birds, but like Central Park, the birds were there, though we had to work hard for them. To my delight and to the surprise of the regular birders on this walk we ended up with 14 species - 8 of which were warblers. Who would have thought Bryant Park would have birds like "Canada Warbler".

Bryant Park birders happy with the birds they saw.

Next time I'm in NYC, I'll have to check it out.

Thanks for leading the walk, Andrew! I think there must an influx of Canada warblers lately--we saw no fewer than six of them during a rainy Birdathon walk at Central Park yesterday.
