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!
