Yesterday (8/29) David Barrett saw the first Broad-winged Hawks of the season 
(2 over Inwood). 

On Tuesday (8/27) we visited Inwood Hill Park, finding 4 or 5 Eastern 
Screech-Owls (adults & hatch-year birds), but only 3 species of Wood Warblers: 
Common Yellowthroat, American Redstart, and Black-and-white Warbler), and of 
course the young male Harbor Seal holding court for his many admirers.
