I had a great day, today, wandering around Central Park taking pictures. I decided to start at the Ramble and work my way north, stopping at the Turtle Pond to see the great blue heron. By the time I got to the Loch, it was pretty late and I was rather tired, so I didn't look as hard as I might there, but I had fun seeing lots of different kinds of ducks in the Reservoir and the Harlem Meer.
One of the nice things about birding is the chance to talk to other birders about what's around, and where—and I'm normally pretty introverted. I wouldn't have seen those ruddy ducks had I not noticed another person photographing them; we had a nice chat afterwards.
