[nysbirds-l] Bridled Tern continues on Great Gull I., Suffolk Co.

2019-08-13 Thread Joseph DiCostanzo
At about 5:30 pm I spotted the Bridled Tern flying off the north side of Great 
Gull Island somewhat east of the center of the island. Numbers of the breeding 
Common and Roseate terns have been dropping sharply in the last couple of 
weeks, but migrant terns have been increasing.  Individual juvenile Forster’s 
Terns have been around for about a week and this afternoon a juvenile Black 
Tern dropped in to make it a five tern day.

[nysbirds-l] Bridled Tern continues at Great Gull I., Suffolk Co.

2018-08-04 Thread Joseph DiCostanzo
The adult Bridled Tern found on Great Gull Island yesterday continued today on 
the rocks on the northeast corner of the island. Many shearwaters continue to 
be seen from the island (both west and northeast of the island). Today Great 
Shearwaters outnumbered Cory’s for the first time. Manx and Sootys were in 
single digits. At least six Parasitic Jaegers (5 light phase and 1 dark phase).

At 3:30 pm the Bridled flew north from the island towards Connecticut.
