Observation details

***Mega, contiuing; very worn apparent adult due to deep primary notching (notes via Sean's checklist). Flycatching off beach stairways (exact pin: 41.751741,-70.440401) entire observing period providing close views of feeding behaviors. Consisently making low swoops to the group and hovering before flying back to original resting spot. Clearly a very tired bird since it would only feed in short spurts before taking a rest. Drooping wings, extremly worn body, and somewhat untidy wing feathers were a good indication this bird had been through some rough weather to get here. Many photos. Thanks to Karen Fiske for getting us on the bird!
