Prospecting for Dendroica gold

24 hours into our eight-month odyssey, and Prospect Park, here in the heart of Brooklyn, NYC will already take a lot of beating.... with thunderstorms overnight and jetlag as an early-morning alarm, this urban paradise overflowed with grounded passerine migrants from first light and justified two three-hour-plus visits today. Thanks to our dear friends Meghan and Jonah for having us (and for living 20 minutes walk from the park...)
