March 31 - Inwood Hill Park - Horned Grebe continues.
I did a quick walk into Inwood Hill Park this morning. I was pleasantly surprised to find the Horned Grebe from the other day still present on the bay north of the soccer fields at the north end of the park. The bird was very tame and close to shore, at times sleeping and later actively diving.
There are still patches of snow and ice in the Clove, but not many birds around yet. An Eastern Phoebe on the soccer field was my first of the season in the park. The only other bird of note was a Swamp Sparrow seen from the platform at Muscota Marsh.
