abstract

Sea-birds from the West Indies and nearby subtropical regions occasionally occur in New England and the Maritime Provinces of Canada as a result of hurricanes. Peterson (1947) lists three species, the Sooty Tern (Sterna fuscata) and the Noddy (Anous stolidus) which breed at Dry Tortugas and the Yellow-billed Tropic-bird (Phaethon lepturus) which breeds in Bermuda
