#ABArare - Herald Petrel - Pennsylvania UPDATE
And here I thought I was done writing about Hurricane Sandy...
A probable Herald Petrel (Code 3) was found on Nov 3 along a road under someone's mailbox near Hollidaysburg, PA, south of Altoona. [At this time, I do not know who found it.] It was taken to Centre Wildlife Care where it was found to be severly underweight. The prognosis is not good. [Update: The bird did not survive.]
This will be a first state record. The only Pterodroma currently on the Pennsylvania checklist is Black-capped Petrel.
