carlinsc Posted February 27, 2021 Share Posted February 27, 2021 When I am not birding, my "day job" is as a SC State Park Ranger. Today while patrolling the beach, I came upon a large white and black bird washed up (deceased) at the high tide line. It was still wet, so it had been washed up by the last high tide overnight. Pristine condition, other than missing one eye. The only injury evident was a broken neck. Otherwise, suitable for mounting as an educational specimen at our Nature Center. USFWS was notified in case they want it for a necropsy. It was a Northern Gannet. A bird I'm not likely to ever see again. So my question is, would you consider it as a "lifer"? Or no, because it was not alive? I appreciate any feedback. I have a pic but won't post it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
