Monday At The Pond

I took my new camera out to the pond on 59th on Monday [1/7] for some nice easy spots to get started, and compare it with my old camera. I was expecting basically mallards, but on my way saw a kestrel and then a juvenile black-crowned night heron. I thought all of the night herons were gone for the winter, but maybe this guy is trying to stick it out........

PS The Pond is the body of water at the southeast corner of Central Park -- i.e. 59th Street and 5th Avenue.
