May 15 - Inwood Hill Park

Yes, the Tuesday, May 15 date is correct for this post, even though I am not posting it until Saturday, May 19. I haven't had a chance before this so I am doing some catching up. It was a birdy morning in Inwood. In a few hours I recorded 52 species with eighteen warblers. The north end of the path overlooking the Hudson north from the overlook meadow (which isn't much of a meadow anymore), was the best spot. Amazingly, the commonest warbler seemed to be Bay-breasted Warbler - there were at least eight and probably more. A couple of lovely Blackburnian Warblers added to the show. The full list of 52 species is below.
