We're going to have a big year?

Hurricanes bring tropical and pelagic birds inland. In 2003 Ithaca birdwatchers were excited to see a storm petrel on Cayuga Lake, and a bit less excited to see it eaten by a local gull.

I went to New Jersey last year and came back with a whole bag of them.  Gave some away as Christmas presents and others I processed into soap.  It was a magical year.  I also found love... but love can be cruel... it can even bite.  Sometimes, it makes a tiny incision in your neck and laps out the blood while you sleep.

The Year of the Roseate Spoonbills was a magical one that I will never forget...

I'd subscribe to your newsletter but I'm afraid that might get me put on some kind of watchlist.

Good call!  Life is complicated enough without drones outside your window at all hours of the night...

O_O

I know gulls are vicious assholes but I didn't know it will actually eat another bird.

Arkanaut

The incident is mentioned here: http://www.nybirds.org/KBsearch/y2004v54n1/y2004v54n1p14-19d'anna.pdf​ ("A dramatic series of digiscoped images, taken by Gerard Phillips, shows a Ring-billed Gull devouring a Wilson's Storm-Petrel at Fairhaven, NY (OAS)!") (So I was wrong about location -- about 40 miles north of Cayuga Lake.)

I have seen the pictures but Google doesn't find them for me.

clouds of bugs are also showing up in unexpected places.  It seems everything except moronic redneck floridians was trying as hard as it could to GTFO

FWIW, I just Googled Fairhaven and it appears to be in Cayuga County, and is very close to Lake Ontario, so the error is understandable.

Don't be shocked when jaguars start back moving into California and Texas.

My friend had an emu running around his neighborhood a couple weeks ago. Were there any cyclones in Australia?

We have scads of them along the Texas Gulf coast.  They are far more common than people from New Jersey.
