This afternoon right after the passing severe thunderclap, around 3:30 I had an Orchard Oriole first-year male hopping and calling around the meridian marshy area in Pier One, Brooklyn Bridge Park. Thank you David Barrett for helping with the remote ID.
I’ve posted photos (digiscoped) to ebird as I was on my run. Bright yellow breast, black head and nape, white wing patches. Rattling a few times and oriole-like whistling. This bird was still there until 4:30 very active and calling. -Jonathan Andrew Pérez Please excuse my brevity.
