May 24 - Inwood Hill Park

Went into Inwood Hill Park again this morning. Again the male Common Yellowthroat was singing loudly at Muscota Marsh. Shortly after starting out Hilary Russ arrived at Muscota Marsh and we headed across the soccer fields and up on to the ridge. As with the last few days, the night before had had unfavorable winds for migration and the birding was fairly quiet. i only recorded 43 species in the park today with nothing new for the season. Up on the ridge we did come across a nice patch of Turkey-tail mushrooms growing on a fallen log.
