New York-Day 2-June 17

6 Jul

On our first full day we headed to central Manhattan


1st sight of Chrysler Building


Started the day with dried tomato and cream cheese on onion bagel at Ess-a-Bagel. Considered the best bagels in New York and certainly the best I had on this trip.


Great Blue Skimmer seen from Dylan’s Candy Bar. A temple to tooth decay.

Had my first look at Central late afternoon. Very busy and not with other birders but managed a few birds. Had brief view of a pair of Baltimore Orioles, a new one for me.


Mourning Dove


NYPD patrol car.


House Sparrow. The commonest bird in New York next being Starling and Rock Dove.


American Robin. The most abundant American bird. Seems to fills the same niche as Blackbird in the UK, even sings similar. An American tick.


Northern Cardinal


View from Central Park.


Plaque in Strawberry Fields,Central Park. 


The tribute to John Lennon in Central Park. Among the objects are a model Yellow Submarine, Walrus and John Lennon style sun-glasses.


The building where John Lennon had his apartment.
