My first visit to Cunningham Park in Queens

With tremendous thanks to Misha Zitser who accompanied me on this voyage of discovery, and who has been talking to me about this park for a couple of years at least.

I observed a lot of organisms that were new to me, (about 20 of them) including three new fern species, two new moths, two new frogs, several new fungi and a bunch of new plants.

The observations start here:

I also discovered that Oakland Gardens is a very pretty area -- extremely pretty suburbs.
