*Rare in Brooklyn, especially this late. **Accidental in Prospect Park.
Calling flyby over Terrace Bridge, heading towards Nethermead (kind of cutting through the path between Lookout and the Lullwater). First picked out by its typical flight call (which I've heard A LOT elsehwere over the last couple of months) and then heard more and seen well, pretty close and low. Very strange and unexpected. Called Sean who was in that direction, but he had just left the park.
My first for Prospect Park, and only ~5th record in the park's history.

*Rare.
Nice looking fresh juvenile continuing (first found yesterday) at the Picnic House. Caching acorns. Maybe it'll stay a while. This was the impetus for my walk through the park. Brooklyn Lifer.

Above Nethermead Arches, calling from Lookout between Nethermead and Maryland Monument, and seen briefly at the shipping container at the south slope of Lookout (the latter bird got followed into the vegetation by a feral cat that looks like one I've seen at this location previously).

1

Heard only.

Possibly an under-count.

11

Good count (possibly my personal highest in the Park).
5 on Long Meadow (at least 2 near Picnic House, 3 more farther to the south, adjacent the middle of the Pools), 5 low calling southbound flyovers over Nethermead, 1 perched on the south slope of Lookout, between J249 and the Wellhouse.

42

*Fairly high count given the not huge expenditure of effort.
Ubiquitous throughout and counted fairly accurately by ones.
