Pelagic Trip Announcement

If you've ever wanted to observe seabirds but aren't a strong swimmer this may interest you:

"Hi Rob,

As I mentioned earlier, Paul Guris and I are running a 'See Life Paulagic' trip to the Hudson Canyon on 11 Feb leaving from Freeport Long Island (just off the Meadowbrook Parkway near Cow Meadow).

We will be going out of the Jones Inlet and weather permitting heading to deeper water. Close views of Razorbills, Black-legged Kittiwakes and Northern Gannets are very likely, with a good chance of other winter goodies including the less common alcids (Dovekie, Thick-billed Murre, Atlantic Puffin or Common Murre), Manx Shearwater and possibly Great Skua.

Here is a link to Paul's announcement on NYSBIRDS-L:

Sign-up is a bit sluggish and I am wondering if that many folks in Brooklyn and NYC know about this exclusive opportunity to get offshore in New York waters? Other than risking a commerical fishing trip (not ideal) there aren't many other affordable options.

Would it be possible to include details on your citybirder blog?

Many thanks, Angus"
