This discussion prompted me to dig.  I had a Black Swan at JBWR on
7/18/93.  A write-in on the printed refuge checklist with notation,
"escapee".

Hi Jim and all,

I have three records of Black Swan at Jamaica Bay:

13 Aug 2000
29 Aug 2009
2 Oct 2009

If this is the same individual reappearing on the East Pond in late summer
at nine-year intervals, one must wonder where such a large, conspicuous
bird could be hiding in between. In any case, this situation is an
excellent reminder of the importance of recording observations of
apparently wild non-native birds, even at a cost of gently abusing the Hot
100.

Hello Jim,

As far as I know, the Black Swan has not been seen for quite a few years.

Cheers,

It's likely that the Black Swan that inhabited the east pond has become too
regular to report, but I wonder if anyone can say he's seen it recently.
