    Comments: Seen well by myself and the one other experienced birder in our group. Birds flying in tight "skimmer formation" very close offshore of the outermost tip of Ship Harbor trail. Several key features seen well: Blood red, chunky bill with black tip; black mantle with wide-ish trailing edge. Obvious large tern features (having just observed 2 CATE from the same vantage point). This formation kept flying directly southwest until we lost them toward Great Gott Island. Super exciting.
