brrrrAs much of the country suffers from the cold it has also been a brutally cold week in the frozen Apple.  Last Sunday a bunch of (crazy) wildlife enthusiasts boarded a NY Water Taxi to explore NY harbor and attempt to see the seals and wildlife led by the ever so optimistic Audubon guide. I saw more ice formations than wildlife but it was an adventure never the less. We did not see any seals but you can check out photos from two years ago when we did the same outing and actually saw harbor seals. . There are a few more weeks of these tours if you want to try your luck.

In two weeks, on March 8th, from 8:30 to 10:30 we will be running our popular photo series – Breakfast with the Birds at the Central Park Zoo.  The class will be held in the warmth of the Tropic Zone. Our Collections Manager is running the class and will share some fun stories about our individual birds and relationships.  Bring your cameras and get some tips about photographing birds from me.

MALALAI love snow days.  We did not get the predicted amount of snow but we got enough to allow the Central Park Zoo animals to really enjoy themselves.  (Me too). Here’s a a fun trip down memory lane.  Zoe, at three years old, enjoyed her first snow at the Central Park Zoo on December 20, 2009.  SNOWDAY

flightWe had a great outing on an NYC Winter Audubon Eco-Cruise via the the NYC Taxi waterway. Along with sensational NYC vistas we saw harbor seals, loons, brant, red-breasted mergansers, goldeneye, greater scaup, horned grebe, long-tailed ducks, bufflehead, great cormorants, gadwall, black backed gulls, and lots more.  There are a few more Sunday cruises scheduled this winter. Check them out here.
