Subject: [texbirds] Sooty Tern - SPI Convention Centre
Hi, all!

Took visiting sisters JoAnn and Milly out to Old Port Isabel and the Island
today; while migrants were slow, the grand highlight was a Sooty Tern that
sailed by behind the Convention Center! (Probably the same bird previously
reported...) Other highlights included their life Aplomado Falcon (that was
the main target), a skylarking Cassin's Sparrow, a Franklin's Gull on the
Flats, and four kinds of plovers at Port Isabel Reservoir! A few pictures
are on my Facebook page:
