Luke Tiller, who is without power, called to report 2 SOOTY TERNS from
the Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch site in Greenwich this afternoon, plus a
very brief and poor view of 3 large birds that were either Wood Storks
or Sandhill Cranes. So keep an eye out.
Tom Robben, who also lost power, wanted folks to know that his blog
will be updated again once he regains power.
Also just wanted to say how well everyone handled the storm today.
Seems like a lot of people were able to safely get out birding at one
point or another, despite access difficulties, and the lines of
communication were in full swing. Awesome job exchanging information.
The fun may not be over yet. There are undoubtedly birds still stuck
inland that need to reorient towards the ocean if they are able.
Continue to check all bodies of water for birds. Plus keep an eye out
for some species that may be more likely to turn up after the storm
has cleared, like frigatebirds or rare passerines.
