A few of us went to Cape Lookout on Sunday, April 13th.
Our best bird was an immature Black-headed Gull in a tide pool at the
point. We were able to walk right up to it. Also at the point were 3
Lesser Black-backed Gulls--this species is fairly reliable at this
location, in contrast with the immediate Morehead City-Beaufort area.
The tern flock included about 30 Least Terns and about 30 Common Terns.
Migrant and incoming landbirds included 2 Eastern Kingbirds, 8 Indigo
Buntings, 2 Prothonotary Warblers (which don't breed here), and 4
Orchard Orioles. In the large pines near the ferry terminal was a large
young Great Horned Owl.
Regrettably, the mosquito population exploded on Sunday. It will
probably be really bad until the weather's been dry for a while.
