New State Bird - Say's Phoebe...

I made the mad dash out to LI this afternoon to see the Say's Phoebe (Sayornis saya) that was found late this morning by Annie McIntyre and Sue Feustel, in the west fields of Caumsett State Park on Lloyd Neck, Long Island.  This was not a life bird for me as I saw my first in Arizona last year, but it was a state bird.  Here is a photo.

Thank you all, I was pretty happy. There is a really neat story behind the find. The 2 ladies who found the bird were doing work at Caumsett State Park as part of a restoration/management effort of the fields. It pays to do good things :)
