In the middle of the afternoon, I got to see the male of the 350 Central Park West nest give the female a nest a break from incubation duties. It was 45 seconds of excitement after an hour of watching the female sit on the nest!
Birding in other areas of the park made up for the hours wait. Spring migration is finally started and new species are arriving daily and general number are higher too. I had three new species for the year, Great Egret, Black-crowned Night-Heron and Golden-crowned Kinglet.
