Topic: Parasitic Jaeger, Solitary Sandpiper

Michael McCabe et al. watched a Parasitic Jaeger chasing terns from the Saint Mary's jetty area early this morning.  It put on a good show as it chased terns up and down the beach.

A Solitary Sandpiper was at the alpaca farm on New England Road this morning.  Neotrops are arriving in big numbers with Prairie Warblers all over the place below the canal, along with Indigo Buntings.  Hummers have been showing up at quite a few locations, as well.

I rode the ferry on Thursday 4/26 and Saturday 4/28 and saw a Parasitic Jaeger about mid-channel each time.  Still plenty of Northern Gannets and Red-throated Loons out there, too.
