About This Site

I created this site in April 2012 to help Starr Saphir connect with people who might enjoy attending her Central Park birding walks.

The “Birding Reports/Blog” section contains reports I have written of nearly every walk given by Starr or her co-leaders during the 2012 spring and fall migration seasons in Central Park. It also contains occasional commentaries from Starr herself, along with articles I have written about birding, and some noteworthy accounts of my own birding in Manhattan.

Other pages, such as “Starr’s Birding Records,” are self-explanatory.
