I must thank Sarina for patience, three times in Central park had to be frustrating for you and my passion of birds must be annoying.
This was super nice trip and i hope we can make it again very soon.

End of story.

  1. Hi,

    The sparrow is a Song Sparrow and the Warbling Vireo seems correct to me! :)

    Great birds btw, in Spring 2010 we had a Prothonotory Warbler in Central Park, NY, as well!


  2. Hi,
