New York, USA - May 2014
In May 2014, I attended a legal conference in New York City and added a few days to do some birding in and around the city. One of the best and easiest birding places remains Central Park, particularly the Ramble, but the Bronx Botanical Garden and Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge are my favourites too. I was lucky because I visited during migration so I saw quite a lot of migrating birds, including a wide variety of warblers. And I was happy to add one lifer to my worldlist: Black-throated Blue Warbler.
