A Prothonotary Warbler made a couple of visits to the Forest Park (Queens) waterhole around mid-day. Less surprising for the date was a Gray-cheeked Thrush, which soon took off from the area of the waterhole, delivering its flight call just as it was whizzing past my ear. The Yellow-throated Vireo continues. The brief duration of its singing suggests that the waterhole area may be away from the its territory - if it is maintaining one. But this rare Queens breeder is staying in the park - for now.
