I may have caught something in the way of a Black Tern movement at Jones Beach today. From 12:20 to 1:00, I observed 6 individuals (1 or 2 at a time) moving westward through the channel, heading toward Jones Inlet. The observation point was where the Brown Pelican was first being seen two weeks ago, although the terns were much closer in (a couple even photographed). Also, one Royal Tern flew by. I did not see a Brown Booby. I say that because some scuttlebutt came out about one having been in the back bays for weeks. That's all I'll say for now, as I'm only hearing it third hand (fourth hand?).
