I note that Peterson's says the Bridled Tern is "to be looked for after hurricanes."

> Brendan Murtha just called to say that he and his father, Sean Murtha, have a Bridled Tern on Hill Point Avenue which is a road that leads to Compo Beach in Westport. They said that the bird was there when they arrived perched on flotsam floating on the water, and then it flew off for a few minutes, before returning to more flotsam. They said the bird is more towards Sherwood Island. Sean and Brendan had to leave for a commitment, so anyone who can might want to check Compo Beach, Sherwood Island and surrounding areas. As far as I know the bird was still perched on the flotsam when they left. Good luck and post any updates to the list please.
