The picture of this very handsome White-throated Sparrow was taken at the New York Botanical Gardens. Spring is beginning to blossom at the New York Botanical Gardens and I won’t be seeing the White-throated Sparrow for quite awhile. I will miss them.
The picture of this Juvenile Double-crested Cormorant was taken at the Stuyvesant Cove Park on the East River in Manhattan. I enjoy going to this little park on the river to photograph because it has many pilings that are the remnants of an old factory where the cormorants love to perch and preen.
The picture of this very wise looking female Northern Cardinal was taken at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx, New York. I am always delighted to get yet another peek at the various colors of our Nothern Cardinals.
This interesting closeup of this Ring-billed Gull was taken at Stuyvesant Cove on the East River in Manhattan. Ring-billed Gulls in many cases will winter at the same location every year and there are many Ring-billed Gulls that visit Stuyvesant Cove during the winter. It has become one of my favorite locations to photograph Gulls and this year cormorants.
The picture of this female House Sparrow with lots of personality was taken at Stuyvesant Cove which is on the East River in Manhattan between 18th Street and 23rd Street. It was taken on a cold day when there was a wonderful fog encompassing the East River and Stuyvesant Cove.
The picture of this Black-capped Chickadee on hand was taken at the New York Botanical Gardens. The chickadee and titmouse are very “friendly” at the gardens and will respond if you put your hand out even if you do not have any seeds for them. I love feeling the life force in their little bodies when they are on my hand.
