Florida and the Carolinas report a number of Sooty Terns and Bridled Terns
today 8/27, as of 3pm.

All internet listserv reports of hurricane birds will be summarized on this
website daily for this one week...
http://hurricaneirene2011.blogspot.com/
which will be updated again this evening around 9pm.

If you use eBird to report any hurricane birds seen, as you should,
please also report them to your state listserv (such as this CTbirds)
so that we can find them and pull together a complete picture of this
hurricane's birds.

Lots of beaches and roads will be closed until the hurricane threat is past.
Put safety ahead of everything else and be careful.

Good news...That whimbrel that flew into Hurricane Irene apparently is alive
and transmitting its radio signal today from southern Eleuthera island in
the caribbean...
