The Bird Is The Word!! We had a GREAT pleagic bird trip this morning with the highlight being an adult SABINE’S GULL (which was a life bird for almost all on board). We also sighted scoters (white winged, black and surf), loons (common and red-throated), bald eagles, northern gannets, shearwaters (manx, sooty and great), gulls (herring, great black-backed and Bonaparte’s), black-legged kittiwakes, storm petrels (Leaches and sp.) razorbills, cormorants (double-crested and great), common eiders and jaegers (parasitic and pomarine)…I don’t think I missed any…THANK YOU to everyone who joined!
