Good morning from the tail-pumping Palm Warbler on Central Park's Grassy Knoll.

Seen at the dock on Turtle Pond early this morning (22sept202). Blackburnian warbler, red breasted nuthatch and a tightrope walking parula. This work thing keeps getting in the way of proper birding!!! #birdnerd

[email protected], dozens of people are saying they haven’t received their absentee ballot -including myself! Do you have any update on that? John Moore, 166 E. 82nd st NY NY 10028
