Hi folks, see below for a full-day pelagic trip out of Hyannis, MA
scheduled for August 3rd. These deep water BBC trips are the best pelagic
trips in the northeast, hands down. There are still some spaces remaining,
as the sold-out trip from last weekend was postponed due to weather.
We could not get out on July 20 because of bad weather and who knows about
the weather for our trip on Aug. 24,25 so this may be your only chance of
getting out there this year.... On Aug. 3, we will be going to the same
waters and get many of the same birds we expect to see on the August 24
trip. This is a rescheduled trip and we have almost enough people signed up
but we need a few more. So if you are thinking of joining us, please sign
DATE: SATURDAY, Aug. 3, 2013: 2AM - 7PM
Hyannis to the Hydrographer Canyon area.
Birds expected: 4 or 5 species of Shearwaters (possible Audubon's), Leaches
and Wilson's Storm-petrels, Jaegers ( ? LONG-TAILED), Gannets, Terns, and
several Marine Animals. We hope to see BAND-RUMPED STORM PETRELS, BRIDLED
TERN, SKUAS and other rarities. Anything is possible. We will be in the
deeper warmer waters off the coast.
Limit: 50 Participants
Cost: $185 - BBC Members - $200.00 - non members
We have MASTER BIRDERS: JAMES SMITH, MARK FAHERTY and others who will be
spotting the birds and getting us onto them over the loud speaker system.
We use a variety of chum by the gallons. Our boat, the Helen H, is a
comfortable, fast, 100 foot fishing boat with a knowledgeable and
enthusiastic Captain and crew. There is a full galley with excellent food at
reasonable prices. Parking is free.
To reserve a space, send a check for the full amount made out to the
'BROOKLINE BIRD CLUB AGENT' along with a signed waiver to: Ida Giriunas, 83
Summer Ave., Reading, MA, 01867 and include either your email or your postal
