March rare bird alert for the Carolinas

From my Carolina Listserv:

This is a March 4 update of the Carolina Rare Bird alert featuring
birding news from North and South Carolina Highlights on this report include:

TRUMPETER SWANS
RAZORBILLS
LONG-TAILED DUCK
BLACK-HEADED GULLS
GOLDEN EAGLE
SANDHILL CRANES

Four TRUMPETER SWANS have been seen recently near Pungo Lake in Eastern NC.
Scan through the swans just east or west of Canal Road C ( refer to NC DeLorme
Atlas page 47.) Some patience and moving from flock to flock of swans may be
necessary. A scope is recommended.

RAZORBILLS continue to be seen along the coasts of both Carolinas. A very
cooperative individual is at the Huntington Beach SP jetty, and a flyby bird was
at Atlantic Beach, NC on 2-29.

A LONG-TAILED DUCK was seen 2-29 at Fort Macon SP (fort jetty). In the low
dunes around this beach look for up to 3 IPSWICH SPARROWS.

Two BLACK-HEADED GULLS, an immature and an adult, are being seen at the
Jacksonville, NC sewage treatment facility. Be sure to check in at the facility
before birding.

An adult GOLDEN EAGLE was seen in near Cheraw SP in Chesterfield County, SC
on 2-27. Check page 30, D1 and D2 of the DeLorme Atlas for SC . The area of
small lakes is the best place to look.

Three SANDHILL CRANES continue to be seen in Carteret County, NC. These birds
have been present all winter. Best bet for seeing the birds is to park at the
pull-off just west of the US 70 bridge over the North River 30 minutes before
sunrise. Wait for the birds to fly by on their way to the marshes.
