Snowy In Snow
It Was Above Freezing

Randall's Island

I love birding Randall's Island (a small island East of Manhattan, south of the Bronx, and west of Queens) in the winter.  I generally don't see another birder when I visit, but today because of a Barnacle Goose found by Anya Auerbach, there were lots of birders.  I also had two Snow Buntings by the water's edge east of Field 31.  Both species were life birds for me, so today was a great day.  New York City has lots of great birds in January!
