Observation details

Flew in to the bay between Port Liberte and Liberty SP viewed from the boat launch lot. Bathed for less than a minute and flew back out towards the Hudson. Pale, long white tail, dark looking bill, fast snappy flight. Seen again twenty minutes later just a little closer coming in and landing on a sandbar emerging in the bay - pale body and wings with no dark tips, seen well this time. Departed again after 3-4 mins - I took some shots but I don't think I got enough pixels on it so we'll see. Not enough pixels indeed!
