Hello birders, thanks to Jeremiah Trimble for this detail on the upcoming
full-day pelagic trip out of Hyannis, MA. Hope to see some of you aboard.
The last month have seen some impressive pelagic bird sightings in our
region! Most recently these have included a Fea's Petrel in Massachusetts
waters, a first state record (!), a Trinidade Petrel that washed up on a
beach in Maine (another first state record!) and a Yellow-nosed Albatross
off the coast of Massachusetts! Clearly some amazing birds out there right
Please join us for a pelagic trip to the deep waters south of Cape Cod.
