Today (4/15/2000) Doug Shadwick found an American Oystercatcher on the
Crosswinds Marina breakwater at Jordan Lake (Chatham Co., NC). This is
the first sighting ever for the area. Crosswinds Marina is on 1008 just
north of US64, before the first bridge. This adult-plumaged bird was
probably brought in by the southeast winds as it was migrating north.
I relocated the brown-backed oystercatcher on the right side of the
breakwater at 3:30pm - it was just sitting there with its bill tucked in.
Also there: 27 Caspian Terns, 1 Bonaparte's, 1 Herring among the Ring-
billed Gulls, some breeding-plumaged Double-crested Cormorants (with
double crests!), and Am Coots. Saw about 6 more Caspian Terns elsewhere
for a great Jordan total of 33.
I need to revise my writeup at http://www.duke.edu/~cwcook/tbg/xwinds.html
