Yellow-billed Loon

Sorry for this late notice, but bird surveyors working for The Nature Conservancy doing bird surveys on Staten Island reported and photographed a Yellow-billed Loon off the southern tip of Staten Island yesterday, 01/14, north of the Tower Park bridge. Unfortunately, public access to Staten Island is strictly limited to Staten Island Road, and only as far south as the equipment shed & collapsing water tower (very clearly signed). However, if anyone wishes to look for this loon, your best access is likely Westgate Landing County Park, off Glasscock Rd. Note that it was searched for both late yesterday and this morning by walking the upper levee road at this site, but without success.
