Central Park birdfest - April 18th, 2012

Lunch time with lovely Central Park birds. Slightly chilly and cloudy day but delightful nonetheless.


Common Sparrow. Freshly-bathed and feeling snacky:

White-throated Sparrow:


Where so many of these birds take a bath:

Sleeping raccoon high in the tree top: 

I'd seen it snoozing there on a couple other occasions but this was the best photo I could get of it yet. No one else seemed to notice it (like last time as well). People don't seem to look up very often.

Female Mallard:

Shy immature Black-crowned Night Heron:

Canada Geese:

Sun-bathing turtles:

Skyscrapers reflected in Mallard's eye:

Turtle face:

Turtle foot:
