    Details: Mega: incredible!! The day started well when two immature birds appeared over the boat together! They circled the boat several times giving great views; it was especially exciting to see this age of WTTR, the first at sea immatures seen in the state that I am aware of; incredibly, later in the morning, an adult bird, the 4th (!!!) WTTR of the trip appeared over the boat and circled us sometimes just 30 feet overhead;
