Note: There's an informal insect study group that convenes near the stand of Boneset on the northern bank of Turtle Pond on most non-rainy afternoons. Quiet observers are always welcome.

For the next few weeks, anyone wanting to see a Central Park Hummingbird, just needs to find the Jewelweed [now blooming] on the south central edge of the Strawberry Field lawn and wait for a Hummingbird. They usually have a route they repeat every twenty minutes in the early evening, so with a little patience you're bound to see one.
