Sept 2 - Great Gull Island - Bridled Tern
In August Ann and I went with a friend, Georgia Rose, out to Nebraska to see the total solar eclipse. We had a great trip and got great views of the eclipse. I will post pictures and account of the trip when I get a chance. As soon as I got back to NY, I immediately went out to Great Gull Island where we are going to be closing down the island for the season this week. Yesterday afternoon we had a great thrill and surprise when an adult Bridled Tern showed up on the eastern end of the island. Below are a couple of shots of the bird. The flight shot was cleaned up a bit for me by Sean Sime. This is the second record for the island for Bridled Tern. The first was in August 2016 and was posted on my blog last year.
