Comments:
With alec hopping. Watching from NE boat ramp. Overcast, 70° NE winds. Hurricane watch for hurricane florence. Amazingly productive given that we were on the periphery of the storm. Birds would drop in and out quickly, and most birds spent less than 10 minutes in view. Most sterna came in groups
