Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] Prothonotary Warbler, Hempstead Lake, Nassau
In reviewing my photos from yesterday and more recent images from today, it
appears that something is wrong with the bird's right eye. What appeared
slightly squinty yesterday (https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45067660) is
much more noticeably out of sorts today (
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45110744). Tick? Injury? It certainly
didn't seem to slow the warbler down: it was foraging vigorously and
singing with gusto both days that I saw it. Did anyone get any clear images
of it's right side when it was first found on Saturday, to see if this
occurred after its arrival? I wouldn't be surprised if the bird rides the
favorable winds out tonight or tomorrow, but if its condition or any other
factors keep it here it would be interesting to keep an eye (heh) on how
the situation progresses.

Cheers!
