My boss' last day was last Friday, but early yesterday morning, the managers joined him for one last activity -- birding on Roosevelt Island. It's a nice activity for a couple of hours, though I wish it were doable later in the day. In addition to binoculars, I brought my new camera. While I was only able to get a couple of nice photos (out of the dozens I took), a couple are better than none.
