Abstract:
The soft-plumaged petrel and related species (Pterodroma spp.) remain one of the most poorly known seabird taxa in the Atlantic Ocean. Study observations of petrels off North Carolina and other eastern states reveal the pelagic seabird to be accompanying flocks of mixed bird species during offshore migrations.

Abstract:
The tree swallow (Tachycineta bicolor) has expanded its range throughout North Carolina and the southeast, despite its reputation has a generally sporadic or irregular breeder. Research shows that land clearing, impoundments and other land use patterns, the reintroduction of beavers, and the use of bluebird boxes by swallows as nest sites appear to have facilitated the expansion.

Abstract:
A study examined eastern box turtles (Terrapene carolina carolina) for helminth parasites in thirteen North Carolina counties. The results indicate that a broad range of helminth parasites infect the box turtle, and appear to be regulated by a turtle’s diet.
