Here is the updated link for the useful website which Frank Mantlik's
referenced ---

and its latest post at 8pm today 10/28 includes this...

"The time to watch (safely and carefully!) for the entrained pelagic or
tropical species at the coast will be first thing Tuesday morning,
throughout that day. By that point, easterly winds will be strongest. Any
sheltered area, such as a parking lot or ball field, may contain birds
seeking some sort of shelter. As the center of the storm moves inland,
those to the immediate east of its track should experience the largest
windfall of birds; however, the magnitude of this storm and its
unprecedented timing and journey may have surprises in other areas away
from the typical hotspots for hurricane-driven birds. If safe and possible,
checking inland lakes and rivers, parking lots with concentrations of
gulls, and river valleys all warrant repeated checks. "

Whatever you do, do it safely during this potentially dangerous storm.
Remember that wind can bring down electric wires with enough high-voltage
electricity to kill, so please be careful.
