Central Park Birds late April

Some straight and some digitally enhanced photographs. Taken with Nikon D750 with 80-400mm lens.


Migration has been slow to start and the birds are few. We had a few specials. The Mourning Warbler, White-throated Sparrows and Blue Jay are locals. One somewhat controversial one was a Prothontary Warbler which was released by released in Central Park April 27, 2015 around 3:45 pm by the great staff of the Wild Bird Fund, in the vicinity of Tanner Spring. Reported by David Speiser. The argument is can it be counted as a wild bird. I thing, yes, as long as it recovers, feeds and continues its migration. I looks like it is feeding alright.
