Rare Sighting at Nessmuk Lake

First appearance of white winged tern in PA ever

 

by Lauren Gooch - August 11, 2017

A rare bird was spotted on August 10th at Nessmuk Lake!

Native to Europe, the White-Winged Tern was first noticed by Rich Hanlon, and later identified by Kathy Riley. Both Rich and Kathy are members of the Tiadaghton Audubon Society. Many other members were also present, including Liz Constanzo Kreger, Ken Cooper, Christine Cooper, Sean Minnick, Robin Minnick, and John Corcoran.

Since this is the first time this type of bird has ever been reported in Pennsylvania, many people traveled from all around the state for this experience. Members of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca, NY were notified of this rare bird sighting through the program, “eBird.” This program allows birders to document the birds they see, notify others around the world of the location and type of bird, maintain the individual’s bird lists, and contribute to science and conservation.

According to Drew Weber, Merlin Project Coordinator at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, there could be people coming from across the United States to see this rare bird if it decides to stay.

Members of the Tiadaghton Audubon Society will be leading bird walks through Wellsboro on Saturday, August 12th as part of the Hometown Science Festival on The Green. The bird walks will be at 10:00am, 11:30am, and 2:30pm.

Special thanks to Liz Costanzo, Gary Tyson, and Sean Minnick for photos.
