May 8 - Inwood Hill Park

I went into Inwood Hill Park for a few hours Monday morning with some visiting birders. While it was mostly sunny, it was still cool and somewhat slow birding for the eight of May. Migration continues to be slow, apparently due to all the adverse northerly winds and cool temperatures.We still managed to find forty-seven species in about four hours in the park, but with only eight warblers.
