Subject: [nysbirds-l] Manhattan Evening Grosbeak: yes
High in a tall oak tree located on the west side of Forever Wild path (~117-118th) across the path from a pine sapling. Stand on the east side of the path, between the pine sapling and the sapling with the yellow & white striped ribbon, and look west and up 50’. Was told that the grosbeak flew in to this tree at 2pm and that its routine for the past 8 days is to sit motionless in this spot till dusk. Binoculars needed.

Locate the only branch with leaves at the end (~3:30 R side), follow it left 8’ then up 4’ to fork in next branch with a cluster of leaves inside. Directions courtesy of Richard Nelson (Thanks Richard !!)

The grosbeak just raised its head and is looking quite alert.
