Forest Park Owl

The last stop on yesterday's birding adventure with Corey was Forest Park in Queens. Any reader of 10,000 Birds has read about the great birding that Corey has experienced here. It's a great stretch of woodland oasis in a concrete jungle. I wish I had a patch like this in walking distance of my house and I don't even live in a city! Our target was the northeast's smallest owl and our search was successful thanks to Corey's eagle eye.

Cool-I know that owls like that can be right in front of you and you don't even notice them.

I'm just glad it was still there!

VERY cool!

When people look at me with pity when they hear I'm a birder who's "trapped" in NYC, I tell them, "You have NO idea!"

Cool pic! Looks like he's sitting in a pine tree, correct? Most of the times they seem to really like the Cedar trees.
