Inwood Hill Park

Great fall flora and fauna up in Inwood. Starting with a female belted kingfisher,

followed by plenty of redtails,

and beautiful vistas.

By the ballfields there was a skittish flock of brown headed cowbirds,

with a Dickcissel hiding amongst them.

As they fed low in the grass, a Cooper's streaked in low overhead and chased them into some bushes. Here's the Cooper's flying out unsuccessful.

Finally along the shore of the Hudson, I found this poor, parched red eared slider.

Seems he got washed out into the Hudson after all that flooding and had been slowing withering on the beach. We relocated him to a nearby freshwater source...good luck little bro!
