Some CT birders may be aware of one (or two) MAGNIFICENT FRIGATEBIRDS that appeared in recent weeks off Cape Cod, MA, then along the southern coast of Maine (Prout's Neck).
Well yesterday in LA, there was an eBird report of an accurate count (photos & video) of 800 MAGNIFICENT FRIGATEBIRDS along the Mississippi River near New Orleans. It would seem logical that this unusual concentration is a result of Tropical Storm Cindy, currently in the Gulf of Mexico.
Check it out:


Something for CT birders to keep in mind as the storm eventually heads east and north.
