If you are going by car to see the Swainson's Warbler at Prospect park this 
weekend, I will tell you what I have been doing for the past 4 years in going 
to this park without any problem and you can decide if it suits you.

Most of the time I park my car on the streets near the 16th St. entrance to the 
park. (South West side of the park). Parking is easy and it's very easy to get 
there (from the BQE to Prospect Expressway and then to 11th Ave). 

the only time I had a problem is when there is a marathon or half-marathon and 
some of the streets are closed. 

After entering the park, walk straight to the Center Drive. Don't go right or 
left, you will end up on the West Drive and this is not where you want to be.

Walk on the Center Drive, east-bound, for almost a quarter of a mile.

You will see a bunch of green containers lining the Drive on your left hand 

Between (not before or after) these containers there are two paths take you to 
behind the containers (north of the Drive). You can take either one and you 
will enter the Midwood area immediately. Walk inside some 20-50 yards and that 
the area where the bird is located mostly. You will see people gathering and 
you won't miss them. 

Good luck in seeing or hearing the bird.
