May 11 - Inwood Hill Park

I started what turned out to be Kirtland's Warbler Friday birding in Inwood Hill Park. Having just done a long post on that exciting bird, I am just going to be very brief about the morning in the park. I ran into Diane Schenker as I headed into the park in the morning. Later we encountered Danny Karlson and the three of us birded together for a while, briefly joined by another birder, Ben,  whose full name I don't know. I found 51 species in the park, the best being a Yellow-billed Cuckoo that Diane and I heard as we headed back down the Clove Road. The full list is below.
