You don't need a lot of teeth to be a Central Park birdwatcher

Meet Liliana Speiser, one of Central Park's youngest birders, and, by her expression, one of the most enthusiastic.If she gets as good at birding as her father David -- and she's starting young -- she should be a whiz one of these days.

Photo by David Speiser, who was one of the lucky ones to see the Henslow's Sparrow on Tuesday. I'm not sure Liliana saw it. Her one failing as a birder is an odd propensity to nap just as the best birds arrive.
