Aside from the Black Tern at Nickerson Beach this morning, I know of up to 5 Roseate Terns seen at one time (although I suspect there could have been more individuals all tolled). As far as I know, no Arctics were found today.
So after I had about had my fill of tern watching a little after noon, I went into socializing mode with Peter Post and John Zarudski. I was facing west during this time, when I saw a Brown Pelican approaching. It quickly continued east, and from what I could tell, turned north into Jones Inlet. A picture of the pelican - not exactly the kind I try to get - is on my web site http://stevewalternature.com/ , on the Birds Recent Work page. I also posted a few other birds from today and earlier this week.
