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.
