|9/25/2016 Marine Science Center's Pelagic Trip from New Smyrna Beach, FL: A special thanks to Michael
Brothers who led the trip and all the other leaders who were so helpful to us. A beautiful day on the
water! Probably our best pic was that of a juvenile Bridled Tern flying over the boat. Also: Sooty Tern,
(juv and adult). Two juvenile Parasitic Jaegers (one with some poor bird) were seen with a Long-tailed
Jaeger . Audubon Shearwater individuals were seen in the water and in flight and we also caught a
distant Black-capped Petrel . The playful dophins were great fun and the waves artistic.
|9/25/2016 Marine Science Center's Pelagic Trip from New Smyrna Beach, FL: Cory's Shearwater study
including the Scopoli's subspecies (One ID is that they show more white on the under wing tips). Also:
Brown Booby and a flying fish skipping along the water.
|9/23+24/2016 Merritt Island and Viero Wetlands, FL: Caught a Tricolored Heron in wonderful light with
reflection as it was fishing. Also: Belted Kingfisher, Common Gallinule (Common Moorhen), and
Anhinga. For more, click NEXT PAGE below.
