Swallow mystery

Much of the focus at Prospect Lake centered on a mystery Martin all over Prospect Lake today.

First appearing yesterday,found by Doug G, what was presumed a Purple Martin has been downgraded to an uncertain species identity. It could be an aberrant plumaged purple but suggestions are being thrown towards a tropical species possibility. These suggestions include Cuban ,Carribean or Gray breasted.

I'm very leery of posting anything here to create a wild goose chase. But if you are in the mood of chasing phantom geese, at least youll enjoy the beauty of Prospect park , then give it a shot and go for it! what's the worst if it was decided a purple? At least the pursuit was fun.
