The weather was hot but the seas were calm for a great day of birding.
I was out for 8 hours today as far as 22 miles from Islamorada.  The
water depth was as deep as 740 feet, below is a list of the birds seen.

Cory's Shearwater  10
Audubon's Shearwater  84!
Wilson's Storm-Petrel  19, two different groups sitting on the water, no
other petrels seen.
Royal Tern  1,  it sure had me thinking Tropicbird, but not so, this was
about 20 miles out.
Least Tern  4, also about 20 miles out.
Bridled Tern  22
Sooty Tern, hundreds!
Brown Noddy  12
