I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Sunday bird blogging

A black and white warbler from the end of the spring migration in Central Park.

HBO has a documentary tomorrow night about birders in the park, which should be fun. I'm not nearly dedicated enough to get to the park as early and as often as I would like, and I don't know as much about birds as many of the people I meet there, but I'm always astonished by what a strange rustic oasis the Ramble is in the midst of the extreme cityness of Manhattan, and how brilliant and beautiful the birds are, all those colors, all those songs.
