 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.
