To reach some of our country’s best spots to see birds can require hours of travel. But some birding meccas are much more easily reached. There’s even one where more than 230 species of birds have been sighted, and to which you travel in style – by taking a cab down Fifth Avenue. New York’s Central Park! The park’s best-attended birding season is spring migration, but birding can also be exceptional during fall migration. And quite a few birds nest here during summer, from Baltimore Orioles to Red-bellied Woodpeckers to Eastern Kingbirds.
