  Canon 70D w 400mm lens, Olympus PEN E-P5, some GalaxyS5mini. Aussie living in NYC. Birdwatching, travel, Broadway.

Finally went to see the Northern Pintail I've known about for weeks, luckily still in the same spot (less lucky on the GW Teal, couldn't find it if it's still there) #birdwatching #centralpark #centralparkbirds #your_best_birds #ig_discover_birdslife #NorthernPintail

A cute but fierce little hunter #AmericanKestrel

When I saw the Bananaquit I had just planned to find Painted Buntings and I did find one eventually, it was slightly more satisfying than the celebrity visitor to Brooklyn in Dec 2015 (even though I knew they were in this park I didn't know the precise locations). A bit bummed I didn't see Indigo Buntings as there had been one during the same week. #PaintedBunting #birdwatching #your_best_birds #ig_discover_birdslife

Getting ready to board my flight back to the cold, enjoyed Florida though!

I accidentally joined a stakeout for this bird, as I was having fun chatting, it took about 3hrs til it showed up! #Bananaquit Normally found in the Caribbean. #birdwatching #your_best_birds #ig_discover_birdslife #FortLauderdale

That poor fish... #LesserBlackBackedGull

This is a Brown Booby, I had to post mostly because of the name ๐Ÿ˜œ It's actually a rare visitor to these parts, but I didn't know, I just saw it 2 days ago beside a pier known for good sea-watching. #brownbooby #birdwatching #your_best_birds #ig_discover_birdslife #johnulloydstatepark

Pretty thrilled that I got a pic of one of the Burrowing Owls winking ๐Ÿ˜‰ #burrowingowl #birdwatching #your_best_birds #ig_discover_birdslife #brianpiccalopark

Mission success! I came to this park specifically to see a Burrowing Owl and now I have ๐Ÿ˜ So tiny (20cm?). They are surrounded by sporting fields and a playground, but each burrow is roped off.

Many beautiful bluebottles on the beaches this week (I haven't been swimming in the ocean) #Portuguesemanofwar #bluebottle

I just got here and I've weirdly seen 4 raccoons, awake in the middle of the day!

Happy #NationalBirdDay, here's a cute #TuftedTitmouse from last week. Thanks @bettielaven for telling me what today is ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
