Subject: [nysbirds-l] Caspian Terns, Southaven County Park (Suffolk) - YES
The two Caspian Terns found by Chris Gangemi two days ago continue on the Carmans River. They put on a great show late this afternoon between the boat launch and lower part of the river, one bird catching a large fish which it eventually managed to swallow after flying around with it for a couple minutes, half the fish hanging out of its bill. There was a different kind of swallow spectacle going on as well, with 5 species of swallow (Barn, Tree, Rough-winged, Bank and Purple Martin, in order of abundance, high to low), foraging their way up and downstream.
