The New York Times blog, City Room, will be holding a “Bird Week” this week.  Why?

The city’s avian equivalent of convention season is just around the corner: the second week in May marks the peak of spring bird migration in New York City, with the maximum numbers of species and individual birds passing through town.

Check it out – it should be a good week.
