Storm Birds: Not Here Yet

This morning the rain stopped for a few hours, so I ventured out to see if Tropical Storm Hanna had blown ashore any unusual birds. Sadly the answer was no. The terns and shorebirds at Bunker Pond and along the beachfront were the same as the last few days. I did get some very nice looks at royal terns, however. 

A subsequent visit to the beach and state park during an afternoon lull turned up nothing new.

I have updated the full year and BIGBY lists as of this morning. I am including my fall sightings from Cape May in the latter since I am getting around entirely by foot and bicycle while here, even though I moved here by car.
