SANDWICH TERN- TNC's Cape May Migratory Bird Refuge

We just received a call here at the Northwood Center that a SANDWICH TERN is currently being viewed at TNC's Cape may Migratory Bird Refuge (the Meadows). The bird can be located, currently, from the west trail (the path closer to the lighthouse) near the dune line, on a small sand bar on the east side of the trail.

Also, a report of a possible ROSEATE TERN at Bunker pond in the Cape May Point State Park. This bird was sitting on the overflow culvert pipe, mixed in with numerous Forster's Terns.

EDIT: According to NJAS staff member Bob Fogg the Sandwich Tern was still present at the Meadows at approximately 3:30 p.m.
