Birds of Forest Park in April

Male Northern Cardinal. Cardinalis cardinalis. The red feathers of the Cardinal are beautiful. He can be spotted from a very far distance. He remains one of the most iconic North American birds.

Male Indigo Bunting. Passerina cyanea. This blue beauty was very elusive. Due to its tiny size, definitely would benefit from a more powerful lens.

Male and female Downy Woodpeckers. Picoides pubescens. Woodpeckers amaze me, how do you hit your head with such speed and force and not suffer a concussion? Nature engineered their skulls and beaks with shock absorbents to survive even the hardest trees.

Old World sparrows and American robin (Turdus migratorius) can be seen in most places in NYC.

I am not sure about the yellow bird. Comment below if you know what is it.
