Comments:
Cruise around "the rock" for one of the highlights of the trip. Great looks at Common Murre here along with a range of other species. Distant flocks of Red-necked Phalaropes eventually provided us with one reasonably close flyby. Acadia Birding Festival trip aboard the Friendship V. Conditions were excellent for the pelagic trip and we had a number of great sightings. With almost a dozen participants aboard and many very sharp eyes from festival participants, we accumulated a great list of birds including four species of alcids, three species of tubenoses, and three terns, including Roseate.
