Special Pelagic Bird Cruise

Join us on these special cruises dedicated to off-shore birding: a collaboration with Freeport Wild Bird Supply offering half-day “mini-pelagics!” With Expert Bird Guide Derek! We’ll seek out the rare and common seabirds that occur in our nearshore waters, but we will always have the hope to expect the unexpected.

This fall excursion gives a chance at some very sought after pelagic species, such as Great Skua. More likely species include Northern Fulmar; Black-legged Kittiwake; Pomarine and Parasitic Jaeger; Shearwaters – Great, Sooty, Cory’s, and possibly even Manx; Razorbill and Atlantic Puffin; Red and Red-necked Phalaropes, and much more. Other possible, if unlikely, species at this date include South Polar Skua, and maybe even an early Dovekie.
