Prospect Park, April 2003.

When I received a report of a rare, Yellow-throated Warbler at the Vale of Cashmere I ran to the park. I never did locate the bird but did have some other nice observations as I searched the surrounding area.

My nose led me to this shrub in the Ravine. When the flowers fully emerge I may be able to figure out the species.
