April 10 - Inwood Hill Park

Since it was such a lovely spring morning, I went into the park this morning for a couple of hours. The weather was nice, but it was still relatively quiet birding. The lingering female Red-breasted Merganser continues north of the soccer fields at the north end of the park.

Singing White-throated Sparrows are still in the Clove and on the ridge and a few Dark-eyed Juncos can still be found in spots. The only new bird for the spring that I came across was Hermit Thrush with two encountered on the ridge. On the way back out a cooperative Ruby-crowned Kinglet, practically begged me to take its picture.
