This evening (1 May 2020) Janice Sweet and co. photographed a bright adult BROWN BOOBY perched on the median guard rail of the Ocean Parkway at Gilgo Beach. See her eBird Checklist.
https://ebird.org/checklist/S68213564 Obviously, this is a very unexpected location for this warm water sulid and is presumably associated somehow with the recent storm. It might be worth looking for at daybreak tomorrow. Note this is a very busy road and pulling over and/or parking is not looked on favorably by the authorities. -- Angus Wilson -- NYSbirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsWELCOME.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsRULES.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://email@example.com/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/NYSBirds-L 3) http://birding.aba.org/maillist/NY01 Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
