Comments:
Summary totals for entire trip. Individual, site-specific lists were also kept for this boat trip. 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.
