January 10 - Inwood Hill Park - Mild and damp

An amazingly mild January day. Temperatures around 60 F at midday when I went for a short walk. The park continues quiet, with few birds around. With all the mild weather not many ducks have been forced down from the north. The day started with steady rain, which later became intermittent and foggy, but was mainly clear by sunset. On my midday walk there were occasional patches of blue sky, but the woods were still fairly damp. The usual winter birds were around: Dark-eyed Juncos, White-throated Sparrows, and the resident Downy Woodpeckers, Black-capped Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, White-breasted Nuthatches, etc. After the rains overnight, and being only a day or so from the new moon, the tides were extremely high with the paths on the north side of the soccer fields partly flooded.
