Tree ID Help

Post by Jenny » Fri Oct 15, 2010 12:25 pm

Hi!

I made this video of this Brown Creeper doing its creeping thing up a tree, but I forgot to check leaves and other field marks for id.

Can you take a quick look at a little of this video to see if you can discern the species? It was in a very wooded part of Central Park called The Ramble. As far as I know, there are few ornamentals here.

Th text was not fully prepared and there is a stupid Typo in the intro which I'm fixing....duh! Just wanted you all to know that I did notice the problem.....

Jenny,

Looks like black cherry; Prunus serotina. Great shots!

Thanks Will! I'm back out today to see if I can et some good tree/bird pix. I really wonder what specifically some of them are eating.
Precious few days left with the migrating guys....
