dark-morph parasitic jaeger, several gannet including two breeding plumage
birds, and a flock of 17 or so red-necked phalaropes along the floating
wrack line. Puffins, razorbills, arctic terns and greqat cormorants are at
there peak in and around seal island's waters. Also seen were Osprey,
Eagles, guillemots, eider, eagle, porpoise, gray seals and harbor seals.
