Mr. Alfred was a great guy with great knowledge of central park secrets and history, he was very nice, friendly and funny, we had so much fun with him and learned a lot, I'd recommend him to anyone interested in visiting central park.

Thank you so much, Melissa. I would say that the woodpecker has become the star of the tour. I hope it sticks around. If not, I'll have to hire one. It is the star of the North Woods.

Yes, like you, I've developed a love of birdwatching. This tour is a birders delight. It's a thrill to see animals in the wild. I'm working on my bird identification skills. Thanks for joining me, and taking the time to write a lovely review.
