And it begins....First storm bird....

I received a text message indicating that Vince Elia had seen the first Sooty Tern of TS Hanna, in and amongst the feeding terns at the Concrete Ship. Since the bird was "feeding" I decided to take five min. to chase but as I expected the bird had moved along. While there I heard a rumor that a Shearwater sp. may have been sighted. I have no more information about this possible sighting.

I've also included a fantastic photo of a Buff-Breasted Sandpiper in flight from Bob Fogg. This was one of the 2 juv. birds that were hanging out at the second Plover Pond this morning.
