Following up on my What'sApp post, I tried to see the Frigatebird from
Shelter
Island with binoculars but couldn't make it out.

However, at 11am the large trawler Rival passed by the bait docks with tons
of birds
around it, and sure enough there was a Frigatebird perched on a wire on the
boat.
I have some terrible distant photos. Its back was toward me so it just
appeared all dark,
but the shape and bill were distinctive.

It rode the boat as it headed into the bay, rounding North Island.

In other news in Imperial Beach this am: the Baird's Sandpiper continues at
Surf Camp. On the beach south
from Seacoast Dr. two Brown Boobies were plunge-diving close to shore. And
there was a
Large-billed Savannah Sparrow on the beach.
