Earlier this month, while visiting Lower Manhattan to see the World Trade Center Memorial and Trinity Church, I visited the church's cemetery and got some pleasant surprises -- beginning with a Common Yellowthroat.
It turned out that the cemetery is a neat little vestpocket birding spot that has attracted its share of rarities in recent years, including a Yellow-breasted Chat, above.
The pic didn't make the column in the newspaper, but wanted to include it here -- so beautiful.
