Subject: [MASSBIRD] 9/23 - Race Point
|A great day at Race Point!
Here's Steve Arena's list:
Here are Josh Rose's comments from the Massachusetts Rare Bird Alert page:
Outrageous report from Race Point tonight, I suspect by people who (like
me) had been planning to be on the BBC overnight pelagic this weekend
that was cancelled due to rough seas/high winds. FRANKLIN'S GULL,
SANDWICH TERN, and not one, not two, but three SOUTH POLAR SKUA! And
those were just the review list species: they also saw a Little Gull, a
*pair* of Sabine's Gulls, astounding numbers of jaegers including all
three species, and hundreds of tubenoses of 7 species, including maybe
the coolest-looking Sooty Shearwater of all time! Tally at the link with
many great photos, from a 9-plus-hour count by Sean Williams
Steve Howell, Liam Waters, Maili Waters, Amy O'Neill, and Jacob Socolar.
