May 9 - Inwood Hill Park - a nice variety of migrants

Georgia Rose accompanied me for a three hour walk in the park on a beautiful May morning. There apparently were not as many birds around as were reported by birders the day before, but we were not disappointed. I had a few species that were the first of the year for me, including Chimney Swift, Ruby-throated Hummingbird and Black-throated Green Warbler. The last had somehow eluded me so far this spring.
