**rare, singing along river, briefly seen
Picked up by song at the river opening, although just odd enough that I didn't want to call it. Eventually it flew across and perched for a few seconds (on the dead branches directly opposite the channel opening). Shouted and a couple of people in the group were able to get on it (the rest heard the shout as Solitary and started scanning the banks). Bird flew back to the Great Meadows side and was lost. We continued down and were able to hear it, eventually as far as the bench but never got another view (canoe/kayak anyone?)

Bright yellow warbler, blue wings, slightly greener at shoulder, white lower belly/undertail. Song wasn't quite what I think of as a Prothonotary, series of single notes, with a very slight buzziness (barely audible at just after 1 second and at 12 seconds in the recording)
