There is no previous record of Atlantic Puffin in South Carolina, so this observation should be carefully documented. Please report at

Was put birding off Edisto Beach this afternoon with scope and found a pod of about seven Atlantic puffins cruising about a hundred yards off beach moving north. In addition there were three Pomeraine Jaegar that came overhead about ten feet above before flying back out to see. Normal coastal birds around. A couple sedge wrens in marsh. Just thought the puffins and jaegar were a bit early sittings for the year. On way home we picked up a colony of RCWs and a few Wood stork off US 178.
