Getting to the park means walking along West 69th street, spook alley.

Not a disguise. Robin is leucic.

How do they decide which berry is the right berry?  Thousands of berries. Find the one ripe one  in the stack.
Not berries. Birthday cupcake.

More flickers

I'll talk to anything that shows up in my face.  I think this is an immature flicker.
Totally trusting pigeon
The swainson's thrush
Not quite mature yet cardinal.

The flicker

Bath time

It's total happiness when meeting a  gorging kinglet who doesn't care that you're watching.
This might have lasted longer had not a guy walked by walking his dog. Bye bye kinglet.

Out for a stroll

Lots of low-down activity, bugs in the weeds.  Hermit thrush and male towhee.
This was the best, male black-throated blue bugging on ground, poor visibility. But then Fatty came out for a stroll on the sidewalk.  When you get fat enough walking is easier than flitting.
A leashed dog came along. That interrupted this magical moment. Fatty had to fly off.
