We have an opportunity to rerun the recent very successful Extreme August Pelagic trip at the end of September. The birds seen in August were the White-faced Storm-petrel, Black-capped Petrel, Red-billed Tropicbird, dozens of Audubon’s shearwaters, a few Band-rumped storm-petrels, a few Leach’s Storm-petrels and a SOUTH POLAR SKUA as well as our common shearwaters, jaegers and phalaropes. Also seen was a WHALE SHARK and a TIGER SHARK…. A full report is coming, keep checking for further pictures and details.
We have Master birders such as Jeremiah Trimble, Marshall Iliff, Nicholas Bonomo, Mark Faherty, Luke Seitz, etc. leading our trips. Our boat, the HELEN H, is a very comfortable, fast, 100 foot fishing boat with a knowledgeable and enthusiastic Captain and crew. We use gallons of chum to attract the birds.. There are 38 bunks aboard which will be available to the first 38 who sign up. There is a full galley with excellent food at reasonable prices. Parking is free.
Please let us know if you would be interested. We need enough people registered by 9/6 to plan to do so. So, if you want to join us, contact Ida Giriunas (781-929-8772) for further information and waiver forms… September 27, 28, 2014 Hyannis to Hydrographer, Veaches, Atlantis Canyon area: 5:30 AM Saturday – 6PM Sunday for WHITE-FACED STORM PETREL, Band-Rumped and, Leach’s Storm-Petrel,5 Shearwater species (including possible BAROLO), 3 Jaeger species, terns, gulls and sea ducks, possible Tropicbird, bridled tern, other rarities.
