Hi all,

As Steve Walter mentioned yesterday, a Brown Booby was reported to eBird
last week from a fishing boat traveling through the bay islands north of
Jones Beach. A photo at close range was provided. The observer reports that
the bird landed on their boat near the “Point Lookout houses” while
returning from fishing and stayed on their boat for some time. The captain
of this boat reports that the bird has been doing this with some degree of
regularity since July.

There seems to have been decent coverage of the Jones Beach inlet waters in
recent weeks, thanks to Steve and others, so I am not sure what the best
strategy would be to see this thing!
