We have been in NYC For almost a week now. Having a Great time!
If you like twitter…check out Chirptracker it is a Twitter for birders. Matt and his brother are working on this project in their free time and could use all the support we give them! Please sign up and try Chirptracker! The more birders we have using it the better!
It was so nice to meet both of them in person and to spend the morning birding Central park! I should have taken photos..but I didn't..bummer…oh well.
Birding Central park during migration can be an amazing experience! Last spring we were in the park and warblers were eye height all over the Ramble! Birders were everywhere! This year we were late for peak migration..but we did see some good birdies. But, I only took a few shots of some Cardinals.
This little gal was very cooperative..I call her a city bird. There were quite a few city birds….they didn't seem to bothered by people, and allowed you to get quite close.Here's another cooperative Gal…does she look like a fledgling?It was Memorial Day Monday, Samarrah wanted to get out of the city and go for a hike.
We drove to Cold Springs NY about and hour north of the city and hiked Clarence Fahnestock State Park. We hiked a six mile loop hike. We noticed part way thru that we were hiking four different trails..Red, white, blue and Yellow. How appropriate for this day...the Yellow stood for our memorial ribbon. I thank those who have given their lives and wish a safe return to those who are serving our Country now.
It was nice to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city and walk in the woods. Roots over Rocks Samarrah found this Rock face with Sunglasses…I bet one of my Sickstas would love it in their garden!
Rock Cairn Sculptures near the path..when you see something like this..do you want to knock it down….or build more?Samarrah becoming a rock sculpture….Jeff getting in on the action.Rock Cairn sculpturesIsn't it beautiful here in the woods?…peaceful..We passed several lakesSome very cool shelf mushrooms of some sort…Any body know what kind?
