Easter Bunny and Bird Bonanza

artst: Lee Stinchcomb

Lee Stinchcomb, currently resident in Florida, sent all her Central Park friends the magnificent offering above . I'm passing it along.

I'm also quickly posting a list of the amazing bird bounty that arrived today, in case any of you want to rush to the park. It's not to late!!!

from eBirds:

Ray Slyper and Mike Bryant along with an assemblage (we would hesitate to use the word "group") including Richard Zaineldeen, Andrew Rubenfeld, Barbara Saunders, Irene Payne, Liz Karp, Scott Zevon, joined by Jeff Ritter had a good morning with good birds and good company. The Worm Eating Warbler (thanks Liz Karp) had killer views by the Humming Tombstone moving toward the pathway toward the Weather Station/Castle. Hooded Warbler, on the Transverse road fence just down the steps from the Castle, looking left over the small lawn and rustic fence.
