Mystery Bird (Manasquan Inlet, NJ) January 2nd, 2019

Recommended Posts

Hmmmm, the bird in question doesn’t look like a Cormorant to me. Structurally off. Really off in that regard. Also, it seems quite small compared to what appears to be a loon (?) in the second picture. The bill seems very straight, which doesn’t fit Cormorant either. Although I can’t really think of anything else it could be. Doesn’t look bulky enough for a gannet.

I saw the Pacific that same day further in the inlet. What about Brown Booby? I know they shouldn't be around but that is what comes to mind when I look at the second picture.

I think a booby, too
