|Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis)|
Passing through the pine groves we added a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher to the day list. Coming back down the ridge from the area of the Henry Hudson Bridge tollbooths there was a Belted Kingfisher on the edge of the bay north of the soccer fields. I recorded 33 species on my walk and later in the day added one more when I spotted from my window a Great Blue Heron on the flats by Muscota Marsh.
Now half way through April my total for Inwood is 52 species, with 27 species from my apartment. The full day's list is below.
Great Blue Heron (apt. only)
Great Black-backed Gull
