Yesterday a Martin was found by Doug Gochlield on the lake on Prospect Park in Brooklyn. The bird was present today. The ID is unknown at this time but it is not a Purple Martin. It is likely a "Snowy Bellied" Martin which is a complex that includes Cuban, Caribbean, and Sinaloa Martin or possibly a Gray-Breasted Martin. Hopefully it will stick for the weekend.
