May 5 - Inwood Hill Park

I am catching up on posting my day lists. May 5 was quieter than the previous three days. On each of the previous three days I was able to record over 50 species on my walk in the park. On May 5, I only found 43 species. This included only one new species for my April/May total - a Red-eyed Vireo (italics below).

I was surprised on my walk to discover that evidently someone had taken the large Dryad's Saddle mushroom I had photographed only yesterday. There was no sign of it today.
