October 28 - Dobb’s Ferry - Tropical Kingbird
Ann and I made the dash up to Dobb’s Ferry to try for the Tropical Kingbird discovered there yesterday. This is a megararity. A first record for New York State. Not to draw this out we were successful! After parking at the Ardsley-on-Hudson train station we followed the directions for various returning happy birders. We encountered a small group of birders watching the bird. We got some great views, particularly through Tom Burke’s spotting scope. I must thank Tom Warren who found the bird yesterday. A second big thanks to Tom Warren who was at the bird when we were there and who drove us back to our car saving us a bit of a walk!
