Inwood Hill Park - Mar 28 & 29 - Fox Sparrow and Great Egret

Yesterday morning (Mar 28) my first Great Egret of the year for Inwood was in the small bay off the Muscota Marsh area at the north end of the park.

This morning before the rains started, the woods had few birds other than the regular wintering species. However, I did find a Fox Sparrow in The Clove in the area where people sometime put out bird seed.

Along with the lone Fox Sparrow at this spot were the usual Black-capped Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, White-breasted Nuthatches, White-throated Sparrows and, of course, the attendant Gray Squirrels.

This evening Nadir Souirgi posted on-line that he found some Swamp Sparrows on the soccer fields as well as Brant on the ball fields along the river and three of the White-winged Scoters on the river near the shipping canal.
