Kentucky Long-tailed Jaeger

This amazing bird was found and IDed by Hap Chambers, Robert Dever, and Nicole Ranalli on August 29, 2004. The bird is still present above Kentucky Dam as of September 4. Dave Roemer and Nancy Moore got stunning photos while the bird sat near their boat on September 2.

The bird can be seen from the dam but usually stays about a mile south with occasional close passes near the dam. The bird has been seen chasing terns and gulls.

Dave is putting together an ID page which has some equally amazing shots. I thought these two shots taken by Nancy Moore were too good not to share and Nancy has allowed me to post them here. Check back later as I may post more photos.

Congrats to all for the find and the sharing.
