Today I went into the ramble in Central Park briefly, mostly because I was nearby, and, well, why not. I didn't really expect to see anything unusual, maybe a black crowned night heron (which I did, once at the upper lobe and again on the west shore of the lake a bit south of the upper lobe) and it was threatening to rain, so I brought my rain jacket and umbrella. Which all adds up to a full heavy bag, which leads to a trade-off decision. Yep, emergency binocs only, and no camera. No camera!
So when I saw the northern waterthrush I could only take pictures with my phone!
I'm sure as phones go it's quite a nice camera. However, taking bird pictures with it.........
Video was even more of a challenge. Sorry for the shaking!
After that I did get quite a good look at a yellow warbler, but the pictures are much worse - I ~think~ the warbler is in the frame, based on my memory of taking the pictures...... but I cannot find it. :-( I'm so tempted to go back tomorrow with real binocs and my regular camera!
Hello, old friend. I'm so glad to see you again!
