This morning

Anders Peltomaa reports [on ebirdsNYC]:

The highlight for me this morning in Central Park was the sight of my FOS [ first of season] Great Egret. The bird flew in at about 10:50am and landed on the southeast shore of the Turtle Pond. It then walked on the concrete barrier rim of the pond towards the Castle. At 11am it flew up, circle once over the pond as it gained altitude and then flew over the Castle and Delacorte Theatre. I lost sight of it as it flew west out of the park.
