Subject: [wisb] Re: impact of Hurricane Irma on birds

A long shot but with all the eyes on the lake during Jaegerfest maybe some wayward pelagic species will show up in Superior this week.

I worry about the effect on some of the island endemics. Some of the smaller Caribbean islands were heavily damaged by this storm and I wonder how the local flora and fauna will survive.
