This is the Kentucky Bird Line, sponsored by the Kentucky Ornithological
Society.  This update is current as of September 1, 2005 at 9:00 AM EDT.
The highlights of this update are:


Hurricane Katrina didn't drop as many rarities into our state as was
hoped, but a few have made a shown. 2 STORM PETRELS of undetermined
species  were at the Frankfort Fish Hatchery on Wednesday the 31st.  One
was apparently quite weak.  A BAND-RUMPED STORM PETREL has been seen at
the Falls of the Ohio as late as Wednesday also. LAUGHING GULLS have
been reported from several locations. And a possible BRIDLED TERN was
observed at the mouth of the Licking River.


In addition, a RED-NECKED PHALAROPE  was seen Wednesday on the shore of
the Ohio River between the mouth of the Licking and Mike Fink's floating
restaurant. This bird was seen both early and late in the day. 3 plus
PHALAROPE were also mentioned a Taylorsville Lake, the species was
undetermined.  Terns seemed to be in good numbers with BLACK TERNS being
mentioned from Pulaski, Barren, Daviess, and Jefferson Counties, as well
as LBL. COMMON TERN were also mentioned from several locales.


Lastly, the first mention of COMMON NIGHTHAWKS in migration came from
Pulaski County where a thousand or more were seen on Wednesday the 31st.
