Birding Tours of Bryant Park kicked off yesterday morning with a surprising event that left our expert birding guide speechless.
The hermit thrush pictured above, a migratory bird spotted among the park’s resident pigeons and house sparrows, was uncharacteristically outgoing for our Birding Tour audience. The participants listened as the hermit thrush sang loud and clear out in the open, something even our seasoned guide Gabriel Willow had not witnessed before (follow this link to hear its call).
Birding Tours take place twice a week at Bryant Park, in partnership with New York City Audubon. Stop by the next tour this Thursday, April 15 from 5pm to 6pm, for a new perspective on nature and wildlife in the middle of the concrete jungle.
