        There may be other unexpected birds as well, who knows?  We will
be going to the Islamorada hump, the 409 hump and the Marathon hump as
well as driving around and looking for birds.  The Marathon hump is the
farthest, 32 miles from the dock.  Lots of upwelling here and lots of
birds.  We will use lots of chum and put an fish oil slick to attract
the birds.
