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.

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