September 7 - Northern Wheatear

I took a very long lunch and headed north to Croton Point and it's train station.  On Tuesday someone had found a Northern Wheatear here.  Since I had only seen this species once before back in 2007 at NJ's Garret Mountain I took this chance to see it again & add it to my NY list !

While the drive up took longer than expected due to more closed roads from all the rain, I made it there and ran into Chris T from NJ.  It was with him that I saw my last Wheater too!

After a 20-minute wait we got on the bird again and enjoyed nice views of this super-rarity !
