Birders: The Central Park Effect

Amongst the saxophone players, mimes, and roller disco enthusiasts of Central Park roam a slightly eccentric group of bird-watchers. Birders: The Central Park Effect features interviews with some of them and many shots of the colorful birds they hunt. I once saw a nuthatch pulling seeds from a pinecone in Central Park, and by "nuthatch" I mean "homeless guy wearing nothing more than a pair of dingy tighty-whiteys" and "pulling seeds from a pinecone" I mean "taking an impromptu bath in the sink of the men's room near Belvedere Castle at about 3 in the afternoon". Central Park is just chockfull of wildlife.
