The good news is that another rare bird has showed up at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge. The bad news is that I've been unable to arrange my schedule to get over there to see it. This time it is a Black-bellied Whistling-Duck. Their normal US range is parts of southeast Texas, southeast Arizona and Louisiana's Gulf Coast. Andrew Baksh has a nice posting and photos on his blog, as does Corey Finger. Hopefully it sticks around and I'll get a glimpse of it.
