Just covering the listserv base for anyone who hasn’t heard already about this bird via other branches of the birding grapevine. Late this afternoon I found a TOWNSEND’S WARBLER while participating in the the Southern Nassau CBC. The bird was mostly favoring pines on the perimeter of the northeast section of Philip B. Healey Beach, but eventually flew across Florence Ave. and was last seen in a lone pine on the south side of the park entrance (40.6519604, -73.4850004) as the sun set. The bird was very active but could easily disappear from view for minutes at a time. Thankfully it was also fairly vocal, it’s calls giving away it’s continued presence. The call note was similar to that of Black-throated Green Warbler, but we’re higher pitched and ‘sharper’. Good luck if you go!
