This morning, a 1Cy (calendar year) ICELAND GULL (Kumlieni) was observed at Brooklyn Army Terminal Pier 4. At some point it flew north, and I relocated it at Bush Terminal Piers Park.

While looking for the Iceland Gull I found a drake EURASIAN WIGEON. Which was in the company of a hen and drake American Wigeon. The other highlight from there was a Raven, a bird that I am seeing with some regularity in that location.

In further evidence that Spring has Sprung, I observed multiple Cabbage Whites feeding and fluttering about the vegetation plus several migrating Red Admirals.
