That is Central Park. Last weekend I went to a hematology conference in NYC, specifically, mid-town Manhattan. From the hotel that hosts the conference it's only a 14 block walk to the eastern edge of the park. From inside the park it's approximately another 15 block walk to the Ramble.
I am trying to think of the number of times I have visited the park as a birder - perhaps 3 or 4 times - and I would recommend to any birder.
Rapidly moving stream which attracted birds in the trees overhead.
Female or hatch year American Redstart
This looks to me like a hatch-year cardinal or an adult female with worn feathers.
Acrobatic Black and White warbler on a log over a small stream.
I saw approximately seven Wood Thrushes.
Robins are plentiful in the park - here a still spotted youngster.
Typically I photograph American Robins in the springtime. I have never seen an autumn robin or got a photo of one with such obviously worn feathers.

Always charming and cooperative - Gray Catbird
