Subject: [CT Birds] Gannets and Razorbill(s) off Bridgeport
My wife crossing on the PJ/Bpt ferry this afternoon, counted 87
Gannets and at least 1 (probably 2) Razorbills looking out the
starboard side window of the main car deck on the ferry (without
binoculars). Most of the Gannets were sitting on the water, some were
flying, others taking flight from the oncoming ferry. One of the
Razorbills was closer to the ferry swimming with a few Gannets. She
said it was in full breeding plumage with a full hood. The other
(probable) bird was at a distance but she was about 90% positive in
the ID also in full breeding plumage with a dark hood. All the Gannets
she saw were from mid-Sound on the CT side. The majority were within
half the distance to the CT shore from mid-Sound. Looks like a Gannet
spring in LIS!
