Re: [nysbirds-l] Exotic ID?

2020-06-13 Thread Charles Witek
Likely a pen-raised bird that always fed from a dish or tray, removing the
opportunity for the bill to be worn down normally.

As someone alluded to before, the bird was probably either an escape from a
shooting preserve or a survivor from a dog-training session.

[nysbirds-l] Brown booby off Fire Island (Suffolk Co)

2018-07-31 Thread Charles Witek
Yesterday afternoon, around 4:00 pm, 15.9 miles, 308 degrees from Fire
Island Inlet.

Just finishing up a day chumming for sharks with a Stony Brook U research
team when the bird did a fly-by over the chum slick.

I was originally unsure about the ID, but one of the others on board was a
grad student who specializes in marine birds, had prior experience with the
species, and confirmed that it was, in fact, a brown booby.
