Mourning Warbler (Geothlypis philadelphia) (1)
- Reported Sep 16, 2020 06:40 by Linda Ewing
- Prospect Park, Kings, New York
- Map:,-73.9689534&ll=40.6602841,-73.9689534
- Checklist:
- Comments: "Initially misidentified as Nashville (Mourning was my first thought, but I talked myself out of it). Seen and photographed later by Tripper in the same area (along stairs between Vale & Rose Garden). Gray head that extended a bit onto its chest in a kind of open collar, white eye ring (to me it appeared unbroken, prominent), olive back, entirely yellow below. I called it Nashville based on eye ring, even though it lacked the white belly (between chest and coverts) I'd expect in a Nashville. Tripper shared his photo and it was without a doubt the same bird."
