I am still getting requests for the pelagic trip in November and I wanted to let you all
know that there are still spaces available. Last Friday, Bob Wallace and I went offshore to return 1500 baby sea turtles to the Gulf Stream. Besides the regular species, we did turn up a juvenile Brown Booby! You never know what we may encounter.
Send an email or call if you would like to sign up. Here is the original message:
The Marine Science Center in Ponce Inlet is sponsoring a pelagic birding
trip on Sunday, November 11, 2007. I want to extend this invitation to all
of you to join us in this exciting day of pelagic birding.
The trip will head out from the New Smyrna side of the Inlet to "The
Steeples" an area of sea mounts and upwellings on the western edge of the
Gulf Stream. This trip holds the probability of encountering numerous
pelagic species. This trip is during the beginning of winter migration,
when there are good chances at fall migrants such as Manx Shearwater, and
always the possibility of winter rarities. The trip always provides
excellent opportunities for Pomarine and Parasitic Jaegers, with always the
chance for a Long-tailed Jaeger, as well as Red-necked and Red Phalaropes, and many more.
We will sail aboard the "Pastime Princess," a 100 ft. boat with an excellent
upper observation deck, a spacious bow, and a large stern seating area.
We have limited space available so I encourage anyone who is interested to
call or email me to reserve your space. The cost is $115/person..
I wanted to give a special thank you to Barbara Passmore for letting me post
Hope to hear from you soon,
Marine Science Center
