Observation details

**very rare, but fairly regular after tropical storms; first detected by P. A. Buckley from Sore Thumb as it flew over the mouth of Fire Island Inlet; driving around to Democrat Pt, we found it resting on the sand between short bouts of fight--an indication of its exhausted state. When I returned early the next morning, I found its remains near where it had been resting the previous evening.
