This Prothonotary Warbler stopped at Forest Park in mid April, 2005, interrupting his migration to forage among the leaf litter for insects and other invertebrates.  City parks are used by many birds as pit stops, to fatten up, or refuel before continuing their journey.

The brilliant yellow of this male is typical for this species, and a delight for all to see.   Prothonotary Warblers are generally more southerly, breeding more commonly south of the Mason Dixon line.  However, in recent decades, there have been  breeding records in  New York State.
