      Or via Nicaragua (San Juan River to Lago Nicaragua, from which a soaring bird can see the Pacific), or the Panama Canal (on a ship?). Elegant Terns probably get across the other direction similarly.

      Amazing record.

      Presumably the bird got blown across Mexico (and into the Pacific) by a hurricane or tropical storm?

Photos are on Facebook, though hopefully they'll be posted elsewhere eventually so more folks can see them. Looks like an adult. Evidently circled around a bit before disappearing into the fog. > > I'm unaware of any Pacific Ocean records for this species.
