Subject:Jaegers at Wisconsin Point

This afternoon (Monday, 9/6) the winds were NE at 20-25 mph gusting to 30-35 mph along Park Point (Duluth, Minnesota) and Wisconsin Point (Superior, Wisconsin). Based on age and plumage, I saw at least four different jaegers at Wisconsin Point this afternoon between Gull Bluff (east of the Superior Landfill off Moccasin Mike Rd) and the Superior Entry at the tip of Wisconsin Point: two adult light-morph Parasitic Jaegers, one unidentified dark juvenile, and one probable Pomarine Jaeger. Nearly 4,000 gulls were in the area so there was lots of action. The best viewing was from Parking Lot #1 at the base of Wisconsin Point, but jaegers could be seen anywhere along the point including the Superior Entry. Later in the afternoon, I looked from several public access points along Park Point but was unable to spot any more jaegers. The forecast calls for rain tonight and tomorrow with winds shifting around to the west and then northwest. East to NNE winds are generally considered most favorable for jaeger watching at the western end of Lake Superior, but jaegers are sometimes seen under less than favorable conditions.
