Subject: [nysbirds-l] Summer Overnight Brooklyn Pelagic - Sun, Aug 19 to Mon, Aug 20
We are running a trip out of Brooklyn, NY to the deep (over 6,000') waters
beyond the edge of the Continental Shelf. The trip will leave at 9:00 PM
and return at approximately 7:00 PM the next day. The cost is $250 per
person.

Past trips of ours in the Mid-Atlantic region at this time of year have
found great birds like FEA'S PETREL (once), HERALD/TRINDADE PETREL (once),
BLACK-CAPPEP PETREL (multiple trips), BAND-RUMPED and LEACH'S STORM-PETRELS
(most trips), WHITE-FACED STORM-PETREL (multiple trips), SOUTH POLAR SKUA
(multiple trips), LONG-TAILED JAEGER (multiple trips), SABINE'S GULL
(once), BRIDLED TERM (multiple trips), and more regular species like
CORY'S, GREAT, and AUDUBON'S SHEARWATERS, WILSON'S STORM-PETREL, and
RED-NECKED PHALAROPE. We've also found good cetaceans in these deep waters
such as CUVIER'S BEAKED WHALE, several other species of beaked whale, PILOT
WHALE, RISSO'S DOLPHIN, and even STRIPED DOLPHIN.

We will be aboard the approximately 100' long BROOKLYN VI. Our plan is to
head out to the deep waters beyond the edge of the Continental Shelf in the
dark and set out a chum slick. We will spend some time at first light scanning
the storm-petrel flock since this has been our best method for finding
Band-rumped
and Leach's Storm-Petrels. When we feel we've covered the slick well, we'll
work other areas until we head for home. We expect to spend all of our
offshore time in New York waters though it's possible we may also be in New
Jersey waters if water conditions predict that's where the birds should be.

Sleeping conditions are roughly camping style, and the choice of sleeping
space will be determined by the order people signed up. People who sign up
early get first pick of where they wish to sleep. Sleeping bags and ground
pads are the way to go, and people will be sleeping on benches, the cabin
floor, and on the upper deck. We will limit the number of participants so
as not to overcrowd the boat.

See Life Paulagics always provides friendly, helpful, and approachable
leaders for all of our trips. We use radios to get the word of any
sightings around the boat quickly. It is important to us to get the
participants on the birds and make sure they are comfortable with the IDs,
not just create a good trip list.

Be sure to check out our web site for information on how to sign up,
and to review
our policies. If you have any questions or need more information, please
feel free to contact us by e-mail or phone.

Hope to see you aboard!
