- Birds Mentioned
(+ Details requested by NYSARC)
Just to add to the Long Island bird reports from today - I went to
Nickerson and spent around 4 and a half hours terning. Highlights were a
second summer type ARCTIC TERN, four ROSEATE TERNs, and a
much-discussed-as-of-late, black billed, black legged, long winged,
speckled forheaded COMMON TERN
For anyone interested in simply seeing a bird of this type, there is currently
one on the beach at Nickerson. Also present are at least 4 Roseate Terns, and
many young Common Terns.

I went to the ABA’s Birding News site that lists RBA’s around the country and
did a search for longipennis. For the months of May and June of this year, most

scientific name. There was one bird report from the Aleutians and

Thank you for the dive into your bookshelves.
For those who are away from the libraries :), or don’t have back issues of

know the most about the records in question find them intriguing, and, having
studied variation in hirundo collectively with great interest for many decades,
remain uncomfortable with that null hypothesis. Another
