May 15 - Inwood Hill Park - quick trip

Just a quick walk through the park since I have a busy day ahead. But between 7:30  and 9:30 I found 43 species with a dozen warblers. Two new birds for the year were a calling Eastern Wood Pewee and I saw a Swainson's Thrush. It has been about a week since I got into the park and the foliage is much denser now than last week. It is necessary to do a lot more birding by ear. One wildflower that wasn't out last week, but that is in full bloom now is the Virginia Bluebell.
