Observations

  1. Number observed: 5
  2. Number observed: 5
  3. Number observed: 1

    Details: Off shore. I saw the bird offshore while on a charter fishing trip. I'd estimate that we we about 15 mile east of St. Augustine. The bird was long-winged and had pointed wings. Dark brown above and white under the wings with dark edges and axillaries. It was a solitary bird first spotted low over the water about 200-300 ft off the right side of the boat. As we passed by, the bird glided up about 25-30ft above the water before gliding back down.

  4. Number observed: 3

    Details: Off shore. I saw these birds while on a fishing charter offshore of St. Augustine. I saw 2 birds together approximately 5-8 miles offshore on the way out. The third bird was observed approximately 3-4 miles offshore on the return trip.

    All birds were uniformly dark chocolate brown above and dark below. All were roughly the size of a royal tern (both in length and wing span). All 3 birds were actively flying low (>4 - 15 feet above water). Pointed wings
