I chose a close location, Green-Wood Cemetery, even though it is literally around the block I drove to the main entrance in Sunset Park, on 5th Avenue. I was welcomed by the flock of quaker parrots that live and thrive there, even in the middle of winter.
It's a great day for a walk, and even better when you still have feeling in your fingers after 2 hours!

|He told me he is rooting for the Seahawks tomorrow.|

|I even found birds on headstones! I love this pigeon addition!|

|This robin looked like it was sunning itself. It sat like this for a while with its wings spread. Robins were excited that it was well above freezing. It allowed them to forage in the leaves and soil.|
|I love the pigeon who is trying to move in...|
|Aside from the coniferous trees, the quakers were he only things that were green in Green-Wood.|
|Canada Geese take advantage of the patches of grass that are exposed on the lawn as you enter Green-Wood.|
