Pelagic Birding II

This special edition gallery is excerpted from a second pelagic birding trip sponsored by the Wild Bird Center of Yarmouth and See Life Paulagics on August 19, 2007. Again it was on the vessel Odyssey out of Portland Harbor. Derek Lovitch was the guide/leader, ably assisted by a crew of spotters and chummers. It did not enjoy the success of the bird count from the July trip but was terrific nonetheless and a good time, including a fly by of an uncommon Parasitic Jaeger. I enjoyed this trip probably more than the first and obtained some beautiful sunrise photographs as can be viewed in this group.The birds are first followed by the scenic images.
