April Bird Walks
 
Spring Migration walks in the Ramble with Alan Messer
 
Venue: ( New-York Historical Society)
New-York Historical Society
Producer: ( New-York Historical Society)
New-York Historical Society
City: New York

Additional Notes:

In the heart of New York City's bustling metropolis, Central Park's 36-acre Ramble is a bird watcher's paradise, where more than 270 species have been spotted in a single year. With New York being located along one of North America's busiest migratory routes, the spring months are an ideal time to spot the city's avian visitors on their trip north.


Journey with wildlife artist and illustrator Alan Messer to some of the most magical places in Central Park's wooded Ramble, discovering along the way both resident and migrating birds. Walks are limited to 35 guests per tour.


During the April walks through Central Park's Ramble, we will search for resident, late winter, and early migrants, including common birds at feeders. Chickadees, nuthatches, woodpeckers, finches, and sparrows may be seen at this time.


Alan Messer is a wildlife artist and illustrator of books, field guides, and periodicals. He is a former president of the Linnaean Society of New York. Mr. Messer's illustrations are included in the exhibition, Focus on Nature XI, on view at The New York Museum, Albany, New York from April 12 through October 31, 2010. His paintings may be viewed at alanmesser.net.

Ranging from grand sculptures, like Karl Illava's 107th Infantry Memorial, to serene green spaces, New York has venerated its heroes with civic and community memorials and tributes to its fighting regiments. This survey of Central Park's memorials will explore how the city has personified the idea of American Victory, and gloried in its own importance from the Civil War era through the World Wars. Walking Tours are limited to 35 guests per tour.
