May 23 - Inwood Hill Park - foggy morning

I went into Inwood Hill Park for a few hours on a very foggy morning. I cut my walk short because there were very few birds around and I wanted to get back and go to the farmer's market before the rains started. Yesterday morning there was a Northern Waterthrush on the mud at the edge of the grass at Muscota Marsh. In the afternoon I was lucky enough to spot the waterthrush from my window. Interestingly, this morning when I was walking around the Muscota Marsh area, what was presumably the same bird was in the trees below the 218th Street wall.

During a lull in the rains, in the afternoon, I heard a singing Warbling Vireo from my window for species number 51 from the apartment since April 1st. My total for the park today was 39 species with no new species for the spring. The list is below.
