I will do a blog post on today's spectacular birding out at Cupsogue Long Island. As if Red-necked Stint, Arctic Terns and a hybrid Dunlin X White-rumped Sandpiper was not enough for one day. Andy Guthrie, Michael Scheibel and I found what we strongly believe to be an Elegant Tern. When I write my post, I will tell my readers how we happened upon this bird. For now, I am posting a few photos for those who would like to rule out Cayenne, Lesser Crested Tern or the Orange-billed form of Sandwich Tern. If you have any dispute with the ID of this bird, please post a comment.
