I apologize for the off-topic / extralimital nature to this post, but Alex
Burdo and I are planning on undertaking the trip to Maine to see the famous
Red-billed Tropicbird this Sunday and Monday, July 20 and 21, and we were
wondering if anybody else had any interest in joining us.

Basically, the bird is frequently seen around Seal Island, and the captain
will take us out on Sunday afternoon, the time of day the bird is most
often seen. His boat leaves from Vinalhaven Island, which you need to take
a ferry from Rockland Maine to get to. We will be taking the 1:00 ferry
from Rockland on Sunday and will be joining Captain John Drury at around
2:30 when we arrive. Unfortunately, the last ferry leaves the island before
we would return from the boat on Sunday evening so an overnight on
Vinalhaven Island is necessary. There are several places to stay in town,
however.

The price is $80 per person for the boat ride if we can fill it with 6
people. Please let me know off-list at my email jpurcell1616 at gmail.com if
you have interest in joining us.
