Finally, a beautiful, warm winter day in New York. We hit a high of 40 degrees at noon. (Hey, that's tropical by our standards.) It was so nice, Charles and I took the kids for a walk to the Nature Center after school. The trail is closed for reconstruction, but the birds don't know the difference.
We spotted mallards and buffleheads (mostly paired off and a little aggressive this time of year), a pair of swans, tons of seagulls, a gaggle of black brants, and one lone plover. I'm still waiting to spot the marsh hawks that allegedly nest there.
