18. Northern Fulmar,5/27/1982,Estero Morua,28 V 82 On the beach was a stranded bird which I thought was a gull. I picked him up coming back from running. It was a tube-nosed thing. Whitish -- the size of a ring bill or larger. Yellow beak sections with dark borders pink-gray legs.... (at first I thought it was an immature herring gull) The wings were OK but feathers were shot. 12 white tail feathers (I took it up to home + and fed it fish and cheese.) White head with some spots near the "ears." No special pattern but I think it was a Fulmar -- a new one here. The bird was fairly stubby. Took him back-- He "flew out over the water + appeared on beach an hour later. (GAC writing and I TC remember this weird bird as if it were yesterday.)
19. Osprey,5/27/1982,Estero Morua,31t May AM osprey on dune pole
