My best find in years!

It's always nice to find a good rarity, but sadly mine wasn't anything as nice as a Parula in a Cornish valley - no such luck! But an email this morning confirmed that I'd found only the third Long-tailed Skua for Costa Rica - also only the eighth for the Caribbean!

This was a skull and foot I found on the beach at Tortuguero back in March 2009, now published in the Journal of Marine Ornithology - the full article can be found online now.
