May 1 - Inwood Hill Park

Beautiful morning with bright blue skies. Inwood Hill Park, however, remains relatively quiet, birdwise. When I headed into the park after 8:00 am, I ran into Danny Karlson also headed into the park. On the soccer fields there were about a dozen Chipping Sparrows and three Savannah Sparrows. The park itself and the ridge were relatively quiet, though we did manage to find five warblers. Individual Black-and-white Warblers were scattered throughout the park and we found two Ovenbirds in the Clove. On the way back out a calling Baltimore Oriole was the first of the year for me. My total list of 38 species is below.

[ADDITION: I didn't get a chance when I first posted yesterday to add the following picture of a skunk seen up on the ridge. I don't know if this is the same animal I came across a few weeks ago. It was in a very different part of the park.]
