Page D3 of today's NY TIMES Science Section features an article
detailing the sighting of a yellow-nosed albatross at Penikese Island,
Mass.(Buzzard's Bay) on May 9th.
The observers were two researchers for the Mass. Division of Fisheries
and Wildlife. Both had prior experience with albatrosses in the Pacific
Ocean. The observers were in a blind conducting a tern and gull survey
when the adult bird "came soaring in off the bay and zoomed by their
blind, passing about 15 feet away"
The article goes on to discuss the sighting and it's improbability. It
cites previous sightings in Maine (July 1999),several in Maritime
Canada, and two in New York State, one seen flying up the Hudson River.
Howeever there was nary a word about this February's NC discovery!
Brian and friends, I think you need to hire a lawyer!
