Hearing that a Cliff Swallow was seen, I headed over to Hempstead Lake State Park where I got my lifer Cliff Swallow as well as a Bank Swallow, Barn and Tree Swallows, Chimney Swifts and possibly a Northern Rough Winged Swallow also. I did a brief check of the trees along the stream and found a singing male Redstart.
