In regard to Junko Suzuki's Bald Eagle sighting last week:
On February 24, 2007 Ben Cacace, a long-time Central Park birder and bird historian, posted a photo on his blog -- http://novahunter.blogspot.com
On 4/9/07 he posted an update:
I've spoken to a number of birders from Central Park who have birded there awhile and/or know the history of sightings in the park and the consensus is that this is the first confirmed sighting of a Bald Eagle landing in Central Park!
