For the sole reason that more eyes mean better chance to find birds, I would like to point out this Sunday's pelagic trip out of Newport, I have no interest in OPT. There are over 15 fishing vessels sitting out in the area of Heceta and Perpetua Bank, recent years have found the vessels elsewhere. This year the fish have been closer to Newport. This fleet includes Arctic Storm and Kodiak Enterprise. It is late in season for massive numbers of birds, but not that late. And the fleet could be leaving as I type and we see a total of one Northern Fulmar flap by, but the weather looks great, Sunday will be after a major wind event, fish are out there, this could be great for numbers of birds. Then it is a simple matter of scanning all these birds for the one Streaked Shearwater or Great Shearwater. I have no idea how you can get your check to Tim this late, but I would encourage anyone to try.
