Birding in Central Park? I Admit I Used to do it Myself.
Okay. I admit it. I used to be a birder just like Jennifer in Central Park Story Book One. I was so into birding that, by the age of 13, I had a huge (by my standards) library of bird books, several pair of binoculars, and a camera attached to my 80-power telescope so I could see them even better!
I guess that made me a dweeb, but I loved it and couldn’t get enough of it. (My parent’s biggest fear was that I’d become a professional birdwatcher.)
Over 235 individual species have been sighted in the park (many of which I’d tallied on my life list). It’s also become more mainstream than when I was a kid, but it’s still considered something only a dweeb would do.
This video pretty much sums it up and it doesn’t take much to imagine Jennifer (or myself) starring in it:
