Bird Walk in Central Park


Time: 9 am - Noon


We'll meet on the southeast corner of 81st Street and Central Park West on the park side entering the Park directly and taking in what wildlife may be in evidence along the way. Dependent on what we find we'll visit Tanner Spring, the Shakespeare Garden, pass by Belvedere Castle and head into the Ramble. Much will depend on what we find and where we find it. It will still be migration season so we should find many young birds and some late wildflowers. There's a chance for some early migrants heading south.

Please dress comfortably and bring water and a snack and, if possible, binoculars. If you are new to birding, you will be given a few pointers abour using binoculars and doing birding.

Our tour guide, Randolph Schutz has been birding since the 1980's. Trained as a pediatritian, he quickly moved into psychiatry, then psychotherapy, and currently works as a coach. He writes poety, speaks French, paints watercolors, is fascinated by the workings of the human mind, entranced by everything living and loves birds, though when there's an interesting plant around he'll head for that, too. He has birded extensively around the metropolitan area, birds Central Park regularly and frequently, and has led both formal and informal birding groups for years. He birds in all seasons and most weathers, and while he loves unusual birds he's been known to be hypnotized by titmice and sparrows.
