Subject: [FLBIRDS] Brown Noddy Tern at Melbourne Beach 7/19


Helllo-

While walking on the beach late Saturday afternoon, I saw a juvenile
Brown Noddy sitting on the beach in a mixed flock of six tern species.
The bird was dark brown overall, with no spotting on the back.  I
observed the bird fly several times and was able to see the relatively
long unforked tail and dark underwing.  Other tern species in the flock
were Black, Sandwich, Forsters, Least and Royal.  Shortly after I
departed a strong thunderstorm came through so don't know if the bird is
still around.  It was located about 1/2 mile north of the only traffic
light in Melbourne Beach.  Easiest access point to the beach is at the
end of Avenue B, one block north of the light.
