Catching Birds

Rose-breasted Grosbeak, immature

American Woodcock

Lloyd Spitalnik caught the two above with his camera. He writes:

Both of these photos were taken on Sat. 9/10/05. The grosbeak was eating Jewelweed in the Oven. There have been several there. The American Woodcock was taken just above the Laupot Bridge going towards Mugger's Woods. Regina [Central Park Conservancy Woodlands Manager] has been telling me that she was sure she was seeing one near the Humming Tombstone. This is a pretty early date to see one of these.
