Great pictures; I particularly liked the gossamer effect in the last one. You'll have to go stalking with your camera and get the Central Park egret and the Fifth Avenue hawk. And how about those parrots in Brooklyn?

New York City, the Audubon, and egrets have a common history going back more than a hundred years. At the end of the Nineteenth Century, a New York City resident, George Bird Grinnell, started the first Audubon. He brought together like-minded people who hoped to stop the slaughter of egrets, which were being killed by the hundreds of thousands so that their plumes could be shipped to New York and used to decorate hats.

Fortunately, egrets and herons are now prospering in the harbor, and New York Water Taxi's partnership with NYC Audubon will allow you to see them up close with the guidance of professional naturalists.
