From Tom Auer:
The storm produced a few alcids during the morning flight at Point Judith
Lighthouse. At least three DOVEKIE flew by at close range (within ~50 yards and
closer). The strong winds pushed them close to shore and they were fighting to
stay over water, hovering above the parking lot at times.
There was also a very decent movement of Long-tailed Ducks, with 22 tallied in
just under 2 hours.
