Central Park – 01/01/2018

Central Park 01/01/2018
About 20 people attending in two groups both on the west side of the park, one from about 106th to 108th St, the other from about 103rd to 105th. Almost no overlap in what was seen. Beautiful but frigid day (10 degrees at start!) following 3 days of almost as frigid weather, with light snowfall two days ago. Only a 2 hr walk. Over 50 species!
