photographing and learning about wildlife
This was a brown colored bird with a slightly lighter chest coloration. It had a long pointy dark beak. Through the help of the community, we were able to ID these as juvenile starlings and the tree they are sitting on as honeylocust.
In the first photo you can see both birds. I thought they might be a mating pair. I saw these birds about a block away from Central Park, NYC.
I see a lot of birds in NYC, but I don't see these too often. I'd love to know what they are. Could it be a thrush? Thanks to Ryan and others for help with the bird ID and thanks to Andrew for the plant ID!
