  1. Sooty/Bridled Tern

    Number observed: 1

    Comments: A large tern with distinct black back and white undersides, long straight bill and a forked tail weakly flew along the shore just inland from the coast. I noticed the white stripe above the eye but didn't know to look at how far the white extended beyond the eye. It then came down in the low dunes. It looked exhausted. When I looked for it before dark I couldn't find it but then next morning found a spot where it had laid. I believe it was sooty tern.
