9/15 Stratford Pt- Probably both PARASITIC JAEGERS off of Stratford Point bluff, mostly sitting on water far out, but occasionally in flight chasing Laughing Gulls or Common Terns. One is blacker with prominent white flashes in primaries; the other paler, almost cinnamon colored (juvenile) has less pronounced white flashes. Great afternoon light. Scope is needed. Also seen was 1 BONAPARTES GULL and the continuing HARLEQUIN DUCK.
Frank Mantlik, with Nick Bonomo and at least 10 others.
