Yellow-breasted Chat and Varied Thrush (and one hungry hawk) in Central Park

Today was very rewarding. I went to Central Park to try for two great birds – the Yellow-breasted Chat and the Varied Thrush – and saw both! I had seen the Varied Thrush last week but wanted to try for pictures. The Chat was actually more cooperative and closer than the thrush, so I got better photos of it. I located the bird on the path next to the Boathouse at first, and then two other women refound it in the parking area, even though a huge Red-tailed Hawk was lurking in a tree above. Here are some photos of both birds (click on each photo for all pictures):
