A Little Birding Around Here
Went out the other day with friends and fellow birders Jim D., Nick B., and Glenn W., on a mid-Long Island Sound search for pelagic species. Lately, there have been many storm-petrels, shearwaters, and jaegers reported from Block Island Sound as well as a few reports from Connecticut waters.

We traveled to deep water out near Bell 4 and into about 200 foot depths where we were able to attract a lovely group of Wilson's Storm-Petrels right up to the side of the boat. I hope you enjoy my photos.

More on my Northern Tier adventure to come.
