I would like to be in Central Park these days. The Fall, as well as Spring Migration, is so wonderful there, mainly because New York City, and Central Park in particular...are "smack in the center of the so called Atlantic Flyway".. Enjoy Jennifer Dudley's film from last Fall, hoping for my friends Deb Allen, "Birding Bob De Candido" and others this is also a great Fall Migration.

This beautiful film by Lindela Mjexicana brings to happy memory the three years when we ran a most wonderful SUMMER DAY CAMP in the South Bronx through Immaculate Conception Parish. With the organizational skills of Mr. Oscar Cruz, the dedicated help of many local counsellors, kitchen people and Immaculate Conception School we created a wonderful two weeks for children in the South Bronx. We used Central Park quite a lot. But we also visited Nature sites up in the Lower Hudson Valley near Bear Mountain, Harriman State Park. It was a great adventure for inner city children that did not have access too often to parks and the wonders of nature. Even places like Pelham Bay, with its crabs and wetlands or the Bronx Botanical Gardens and Bronx Zoo were part of what we, like Lindela provided for her children. Enjoy this!
