April 24 - Inwood Hill Park

I went into the park for about ninety minutes this morning. The birding continues to be a bit slow, so i concentrated again on wildflowers. I found the White Trilliums in bloom. I missed them yesterday when I looked for them in the wrong place.

Common Violets were in bloom in a number of places as I noted yesterday.

Also in bloom up on the ridge were Virginia Bluebells.

Apparently wanting to keep in the blue theme, a Blue Jay posed just off the wall over the Indian Caves.

As I said above, the birding was fairly quiet, though there were a number of Yellow-rumped Warblers around the pine groves along the center of the ridge. The one somewhat unusual bird for the park was a lone Rusty Blackbird along the shore of the bay north of the soccer fields. My full lsit of 28 species found is below.
