yesterday there was a WNW so I decided to sit by the Pt Edward lighthouse in 
the morning and then in the afternoon.  Sightings in order:

8:40--unidendified jaeger
9:00--intermediate PARASITIC jaeger and a bulky jaeger with a white belly 
which I believed to be a POMARINE (not adult). They were chasing eachother 
briefly and chasing ringers, mostly the parasitic.
9:30--unidentified jaeger
10:00--3 LONGSPURS flew over calling.
4:20--intermediate PARASITIC jaeger.
5:00--american coot in the lake
6:00--2 surf scoters

In adjecent Canatara park on Saturday I saw a gray-cheeked thrush and winter 
good birding,
