The picture of this Gray Catbird was taken at Stuyvesant Cove. I have been going to Stuyvesant Cove Park which is a beautiful small park that goes from 18th Street to 23rd Street on the East River. It is very well managed Solar One.
I have been taking pictures of the more abundant New York City birds and I had an interesting discovery. Since these birds are very accessible, I have less anxiety about getting the shot. I can take more time setting up my shot and trying new technique since I am not so worried about making sure I get the bird because I may never have a chance to shoot it again.
I am very happy with the detail and sharpness of the feathers. I love the eyes and the “personality” of this bird.
