September 19 - Inwood Hill Park

It what has become a familiar refrain the last few days, it was a beautiful morning, this time in Inwood Hill Park, but there was not a lot of bird activity evident. I only found four warblers this morning, but one was a Bay-breasted, so that was nice. Also, the fall sparrow migration gave some evidence of starting. My morning list follows.

Canada Goose
Wood Duck (My thanks to Nadir Souirgi for giving me a call to let me know about the male Wood Duck he found at the west edge of the lagoon north of the soccer fields in from 218th Street. This is definitely a rare species in the park.)
