May 18 - Inwood Hill Park - Things slow down

The birding slowed way down this morning from recent days. I only found 46 species this morning compared to the 60-70 this last few mornings. I only found three warblers. The birding was so quiet I spent more time taking pictures of plants than I usually do. Below are some of the plants currently in bloom. Most of these have been in bloom for some days or even weeks.
Ivy-leaved Toadflax (Cymbalaria muralis)
Greater Celandine (Chelidonium majus)
Honeysuckle (Lonicera sp.)
Princess Tree (Paulownia tomentosa)
