October 1 - Muscota Marsh, Inwood Hill Park - Red Phalarope

I normally only put my own sightings on my blog, but this is such a rarity I wanted to post it here. Sometime around 9:00 am Andrew Farnsworth found and photographed a Red Phalarope at Muscota Marsh. The bird flew off soon after. Amazingly, this is a second record for the species at this location. I saw one from my apartment window in the ship channel off Muscota Marsh the morning after superstorm Sandy came through on October 30, 2012.

I was leading my Central Park bird walk group this morning or this bird could have been an incredible second record for my apartment list. I always thought of the post-Sandy bird as a never to be repeated event!
