Tropical Storm Sandy rare bird liveblog

As the Frankenstorm churns it’s way up the coast and swings in across the Mid-Atlantic there is a good possibility that many interesting birds will be dropped off in lakes, reservoirs, and rivers after being displaced by the storm. Here we will post updates on storm-birds seen across the region as a way to give people a heads up on places to check, species to look for, etc. For more information about what birds could be possible during a late-fall storm like this, check out what eBird has to say. Also keep an eye on BirdCast for weather and bird forecasts.
