Having just seen a Prothonitary Warbler in NY at the Montezuma NWR COMPLEX, I'd be uncomfortable calling this a PRWA.

As I was walking down, a bird came off of the ground and flew right by me. I only got a brief glimpse of yellow but it landed on some shrubs not far from me and I got a couple of shots (exactly the same) off before it flew off. There was no sound and nothing I could latch onto for ID, so I did not add the bird to my checklist thinking maybe I could ID it from the photo. This still had me stumped, and I posted it on a forum for bird ID. All there agreed on Prothonatary warbler. I have still not added it to my checklist, because I want to be sure. I know this would be a quite rare find. Here are links to the 2 photos I got. Any opinions??
