Jim Osborne, Allan Strong, Ted Murin, and I had the pleasure of seeing a
Pomarine Jaeger Saturday morning. The light-phase adult flew to within
200-300 yards of us, affording great views of such details as the
twisted central tail feathers. It flew slowly and close to the water
until well past us, then accelerated strongly, rose ~15 feet executed a
couple of acrobatic twists and settled on the surface.
According to Ted, this is the first adult seen from CTB.
Also present were twelve White-winged Scoters (in a single group) and a
late-season Black Tern.
