Hi Charlene,
Sorry, I didn't get a chance to let you guys know I had another 
(same?)dark-phased PARASITIC JAEGER from the Point 18 campground spot 
late Wednesday afternoon the 25th. It was cruising along, then made 2 
amazing attacks on RING-BILLED GULLS.

The background was Keyesport water tower and Boulder area but the bird was
definitely quite a ways to the N end of the lake.

Other than that, nothing too exciting. I spent a little time at Hazlet
in the later AM hours but didn't find too much.

All 4 now.



BTW, SABINE'S GULLS are still being seen in Iowa and even Wisconsin.
Several jaegers at "Jaegerfest" last weekend in Wisconsin.

Good fall birding,
