Barred Owl In The Delacorte and Turtle Pond
Northern Saw-whet Owl With Mouse

The Pond

The Pond had the Mandarin Duck, who had returned, but also had an unusual visitor for so late in the year, a Juvenile Black-crowned Night Heron.  As a birder, the Heron won.  As a photographer, the Mandarin Duck won.  So, I guess it was a tie.
