May 26 - Inwood Hill Park

It was foggy when I went in to the park at about 6:30 am this morning. However, as the morning wore on the fog burned off and it proved to be the most active day of the last several. There was nothing unusual, but I did manage to find 50 species by the time I went home in mid-morning. I then added a 51st with Great Egret from my apartment window a short time later.
