It's spring migration time and there are a lot of interesting birds to be found in Tompkins Square Park. Below are a few highlights.

Some of these birds, like the Tanager, have traveled all the way from South America. How wonderful they've decided to take a rest stop in our neighborhood. Look closely at the leafy treetops or on the ground among the short bushes and you'll see these colorful visitors.
