Central Park

On our way home from Costa Rica we had an overnight stay at Newark, New Jersey. So I got a chance to visit Central Park for a couple of hours to do a bit of birding.  There were fewer birds during my visit this time than I have seen in past trips to this fantastic location in the middle of Manhattan Island.  I would have loved to have had enough time to get out to Jamaca Bay, as I have done in previous visits to the Big Apple.  Below are some shots from this trip and previous visits to the park.
