May 1 - Inwood Hill Park

I went into Inwood this morning for a short walk before going to work. It was relatively quiet. I saw no warblers, but I did pick up some new birds for the year. Yesterday in Central Park I saw the first Gray Catbirds and Baltimore Oriole I had seen anywhere this year. This morning, both species were present in numbers in Inwood Hill Park. I must have heard about six orioles calling on the ridge. Completely new for me for the year was a Wood Thrush singing in the Clove as was a skulking House Wren near the old eagle hacking site.

Among flowers, I think I came across the same large Jack-in-the-pulpit that Jessica Ancker reported to inwoodbirdwatchers.

Common Violoets were also in bloom on the east side of the Clove.
