Six of us joined forces to look for the ocean-going, winter birds of our area. The fishing boat went directly to Jeffreys Ledge, where the fishing was reported to be very good. (Sunday, January 10th, will be the last outing for this winter.)
We had five of the six local alcids (missed Thick-billed Murre), plenty of Black-legged Kittiwake, a few fulmar and gannets. We enjoyed a nice diversity of species, but other than kittiwakes, not in substantial numbers. Highlights and numbers for the day are below.
