Flights of Fancy
Meet the many birds that call Central Park home—at least part time.
As a child, Ken Michaels, a lawyer and amateur photographer used to enjoy birdwatching in Central Park with his dad. So when Covid struck, he struck back, co-opting his wife Lenore to traipse around the Loch, the Meer, and other avian sanctuaries with him. In no time, the critters—the smaller ones, especially—would fly right into Lenore hands. That’s when the couple officially joined the ranks of the park’s “Crazy Bird People,” Lenore laughs. Here, some highlights of the past two years—with details of where to find the birds yourselves.
