Sunday in Prospect Park

It was an unseasonably warm day and my wife and I took a stroll in the park to explore some of the fall changes. I'll post a complete report and our day list tomorrow. Here are some photos until then.

Follow-up: Too much time has passed and the day's details have faded a bit. I'll have to skip my usual day report. However, the highlight of the day was seeing a Yellow-billed Cuckoo perched at the flower garden at the park's 5th Street entrance. Also, I've added some links to go with the photos
