May 4 - Inwood Hill Park - good birds in the afternoon
The morning had been so good in the park, I went back in a little before 5:00 pm to see if I could find anything else. I was glad I did since I found a number of good birds I had not seen in the morning. I picked up one additional warbler, a late Palm Warbler. Thus bringing my warbler total for the day to 17 species. With reports of other warblers seen in the park during the day, the total variety of warblers in Inwood on Saturday was certainly over 20 species. Two good birds I found at the north end of the ridge were Summer Tanager and Blue Grosbeak. The Summer Tanager was a male, but not fully red, still a little blotchy. The Blue Grosbeak was an adult male. There may have been a second individual present which I only got a glimpse of, but the second bird could have been an Indigo Bunting which was also feeding in the vicinity. In total I ended up with 68 species in the park for the day. I very good day in Inwood.
