Birds Take Over Brooklyn Botanic Garden
The closure of Brooklyn Botanic Garden this spring has allowed birds the opportunity to have this urban habitat almost entirely to themselves. Without many people to interfere, a family of Canada geese has been flourishing, a cormorant has been fishing freely in the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden, young sparrows have been singing and bathing in the fountains, and a wide variety of warblers have been warbling. Not many humans have had access to these sights, but one of the few who has is photographer Steven Severinghaus.
Below are some of the amazing photos he has captured this spring. Enjoy this unprecedented look at their time almost alone in the Garden.
