Fwd: eBird Report - Prospect Park--Prospect Lake, Feb 4, 2018

My timing was off. As I went into Prospect around 315 ,I thought I was satisfied spotting a pair of AMERICAN WIGEON, the continuing Drake RED BREASTED MERGANSER, a perched Double crested Cormorant making my drizzy start worthwhile. It turns out much credit to Russ spotting good birds on the Lake.

Russ had both COMMON LOON and a HORNED GREBE around 430 ! I can't remember in any recent memory both these species on the same day same time. So kudos to Russ and always think positive even when it's a gloomy looking rainy day: that's when you might get a rarity.
