Good movement overnight, with an influx of later-season migrants this morning. On my twice-weekly Bryant Park walk (free, Mondays 8-9am & Thursdays 5-6pm) we spotted some nice diversity in an hour, mostly around the central lawn area. I suspect there were many birds we missed, especially in the

Hi all, Before going to work I spent a few minutes looking for The Chuck. It's still here. Today it is roosting on a branch right above the most northern path inside the park. If you stand on that path near the bathrooms in the NE corner, look West and up above the path, you'll find the Chuck.

I led my twice-weekly bird walk in Bryant Park (that little patch of green between 40th 42nd St from 5th to 6th Ave) this morning from 8-9am.  Things are really picking up there! Most of the activity was high in the treetops, with a few birds skulking in flower beds and various corners.

I led the Monday edition of my twice-weekly tour of Bryant Park this morning.  BP has been strangely quiet this Spring, especially recently compared to certain *other* small urban parks in NYC.  Today we managed a fairly respectable list of 20 or so species, although we had to work for them.

This morning on my weekly Bryant Park/ NYC Audubon walk, we had some interesting sightings. Of note was a roving flock of Tufted Titmice in the tops of the London Plane trees.  Although a common species, they seem to stick to their territories in Central Park or wherever, and I don't recall
