Paulagics pelagic trip out of Freeport, NY.
Leaders: Paul Guris, Todd McGrath, Doug Gochfeld, Sean Sime, Shai Mitra, Steve Kacir.

Coordinates taken at 9:25 AM, just after leaving the small boat we were helping out.

Also ~12 Common Dolphins.


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

    Details: *Rare this far off shore. Together on the water in front of the boat, then flew as we approached. Photos.
    #s 3&4 of the trip, so clearly some atypical displacement (probably due to inland freezing) from farther north is happening in the region right now.

  3. Number observed: 132

    Details: *Very high count, and this hour's count alone was higher than the previous New York State high count, but this was helped out in large part by our having to go help a small boat in distress, which took us east, essentially on a transect directly through the heart of the Common Murre zone. Photos of a bunch. The last 78 were counted on a clicker.
