Something Different: Gray Catbird

Most different for me, aside from something new, is where I saw it.

Recently transitioning from southern swamps & marshes to urban jungle, this oasis with flowers & birds which enjoy them is... Central Park, NYC.

Called a "catbird" due to its "meow" cry, but it is a relative of the mockingbird, & will mimic other birds in addition to cats.

While trying to ID it, I came across this short vid with a sample of song:

A gray catbird sitting on a wire fence surrounding a flower bed. It's a small bird, the size of a starling, finch, or wren, grey (with slight blue cast) and with a black crown.

Too much good #art at MoMA right now — Ming Smith, Ellsworth Kelly and a luminous, eye-opening collection of early 20th-century charcoal drawings, pastels and other works on paper by #GeorgiaOKeeffe — grateful that my partner had this on the calendar #abstractart #photography #nyc

Abstract art by Georgia O’Keeffe at MoMA in NYC — pastels, charcoal drawings and more

A nice comment in /r/Brooklyn reminding everyone that despite our never ending desire to point out the inadequacies of the MTA, public transportation in #nyc has improved in some very meaningful ways over the last 5-10 years.

A Reddit comment stating the following:

Technology prevails. I’ve lived in NYC for almost 20 years and I can tell you the train is definitely better now than it used to be. Some of the improvements have been

	•	WIFI / CELL service on the platform and all subway stations
	•	Newer / better trains with better Air conditioning and ventilation
	•	The ability to tap your card / phone / smart watch to pay
	•	the MyMTA App has pretty good timing on all trains so it’s always good to check it before you leave.

What has really gotten worse is all the disrespectful people playing music / TikTok on their phones or people blasting music with speakers in public, and of course all the insane people looking for a fight. There used to be a lot less crazy people on the train.

Anyway, chin up - riding during rush hour is still pretty reliable and I would just try to avoid it at night (take an Uber /Lyft)

Back in 2005 you could wait for a train for 40 minutes and you wouldn’t even have cell service to know if it was coming or not

Pointed roofs of Harlem brownstones are silhouetted across the street, and a taller apartment building can be seen in the distance.

A roseate spoonbill bird standing on a slightly submerged stick in a murky pond. The bird’s long pink toes grasp the branch. The body is covered with white and light pink feathers while the folded wings are darker pink with a slash of bright pink feathers. The head is a featherless grey and the long bill is rounded and flattened at the end giving the bird its name. This bird was resting after dipping its bill in the water and gently moving its head back and forth to feed on aquatic invertebrates in encountered.
Three Inca terms rest on a branch in the sun with rocks and conifer trees in the background. They are dark grey with darker tails and heads, bright orange red bills and feet and curious thin white feathers curling back from the apex of the bill below the eye to make a bold comma behind the head. Just below the base of this feather is a small patch of bright yellow skin.

More MOMA, this time some shots from the top floor "Signals"
show- a real mind melter. Im a Nam June Paik fan (loved seeing Zen for TV), but seeing these video pieces around media, "news", broadcasting and surveillance. If it didn't cost $25 per visit I would come back just to see the video show. Dara BirnBaum's intimate Tiananman square piece was well placed aside Julia Scher's Information America.

While some friends were in town I tagged along with them to MoMa which did not disappoint! I found myself stuck in this "Systems" room as my friends explored the rest of the floor. Excellent work and my favorite room in a host of good current shows there

So I gotta look more into the work of Kate Crawford and Andrew Norman Wilson. Tough concepts to illustrate and wrap your head around, but so relevant and super interesting to me.

Imagine running a government program so popular that demand outstrips supply by 50%, that *also* helps the city's poorest families and gives kids something to do during the boring summer months.. and deciding, "Nah, we don't need to continue this once federal funding runs out."


New seats won’t be added, but filled seats might open up

Vadehra said they’re not planning to add seats — emphasizing that this program is being supported by federal dollars that are set to run out next year — and there is no wait list for seats. But they are expecting an unspecified number of spots to open up, either because fewer students will be mandated to attend summer school or because families may decline a seat they’ve been offered. The education department is working with DYCD to figure out how to make families aware of empty seats in June and how they can apply for those, she said.

Parking your #suv in a #bikelane like this can often be an indicator of how little someone respects the safety of their neighbors. That’s definitely the case with this motorist. A quick check of their plates on reveals this person has 34 violations since 2021, including 24 school zone #speeding violations. How is this person still able to #drive in #NYC ? And why is the ticket for speeding in a #school zone only $50?!
