The New Jersey Audubon hosted a bird walk in Central Park with Pete Dunne. I was only able to say a short time, but I saw great birds (above), met some really terrific birders, and even watched a fight.
So, I thought I saw an injured sparrow on the ground, but …
It wasn’t alone; it was a serious fight between two males over a female
Here’s what they were fighting over …
Here is a statue of Romeo and Juliet. We met at the Delacorte Theater, and that’s where the sparrows were nesting under the eaves. there were actually quite a number of nests.
This is Eric Stiles, President and CEO of NJ Audubon addressing the group.
Here is Pete Dunne and me
