Lido Beach Preserve
There's been 3 reports of Prothonotary Warblers recently - one each in Brooklyn, Nassau and Queens. I've seen one up close before in Jersey, but was in poor lighting and would have liked to get a decent photo. A continuing one was reported again this morning in Lido Preserve so I headed over there ASAP. I didn't have much time and wasn't finding the bird - no one else had seen it for about an hour, however I got lucky and saw it right before I was about to leave. In the marsh I saw my FOS presumably Forster's Terns as well as a nice looking Yellow Bellied Sapsucker.
