I've had a VERY INTERESTING day today.
The original plan for today was to drive from Long Island over to Galilee, RI (right by Point Judith) to take the 9AM ferry to Block Island to meet a friend who was already over there and stay until Sunday. That plan was immediately ruined by the fact that the ferries were cancelled today due to Tropical Storm Jose being right offshore. We went to Point Judith to do a quick seawatch, which turned up a Lesser Black-backed Gull, a Roseate Tern and a possible Arctic Tern in a mixed feeding flock right off the point. List:
We then went to Newport for breakfast (on the way I saw my FOY Wild Turkey), where it was so windy and rainy we had a hard time walking 200ft. After that we went to Mystic, CT to try to catch some better weather (which did happen). I found my very first living adult Cicada (Dog-day Cicada, Neotibicen canicularis) on the sidewalk on its way out. We wound up staying in Norwich, CT and hopefully the ferries run tomorrow.
