Hi To All,

The Friends of the Marine Science Center in Ponce Inlet is sponsoring a
pelagic birding trip on Sunday, October 4, 2015. This trip will be held
in conjunction with the Florida Ornithological Society Fall Meeting and
also the 4th Annual Wings & Wildflowers Festival in Lake County.  To
learn more about the Fall FOS Meeting go to:  
http://www.fosbirds.org/content/fos-fall-meeting-oc-2-4-2015.  To
learn more about the Wings and Wildflowers Festival go to:
www.wingsandwildflowers.com. 

The trip will head out from the New Smyrna side of Ponce de Leon Inlet
to “The Steeples” -- an area of sea mounts and upwellings on the
western edge of the Gulf Stream. We will continue out to about 60 miles
offshore. This trip holds the probability of encountering numerous
pelagic species. Jaeger migration should be active. Black-capped Petrels
should be on the move.  This trip is during the middle of fall
migration, when there are good chances at fall migrants such as Manx
Shearwater, and the possibility of interesting rarities, including
Sabine’s Gull and Long-tailed Jaeger. Migrating land birds are also
likely at this time of year and they often land right on the boat. The
Fall trip provides a great chance to find large numbers of pelagic
species. On one trip, we found more than 1,600 Cory's Shearwaters!  In
2013, we had 41 Black-capped Petrels (the largest number of Black-capped
Petrels ever seen in Florida);  612 Cory's Shearwaters; 1 Great
Shearwater, 1 Manx Shearwater, 64 Audubon's Shearwaters, 1 Band-rumped
Storm-Petrel and all three jaegers, including 1 Long-tailed Jaeger.

Potential Species include (* = good probability):

Cory’s Shearwater *
Great Shearwater *
Sooty Shearwater
Audubon’s Shearwater *
Manx Shearwater *
Wilson’s Storm Petrel 
Leach’s Storm-Petrel *
Band-rumped Storm-Petrel *
Black-capped Petrel *
Brown Booby    
Masked Booby
Northern Gannet *
Red-billed Tropicbird  
White-tailed Tropicbird
Red Phalarope *
Red-necked Phalarope *
Pomarine Jaeger *
Parasitic Jaeger *
Long-tailed Jaeger  
Sooty Tern *
Bridled Tern *
Brown Noddy
Sabine’s Gull

The trip will be aboard “The Pastime Princess” a 100-foot,
all-aluminum boat with excellent observation areas on the upper deck and
bow and even a nice stern seating area. The cabin can also accommodate
30-40 in air-conditioned comfort. To learn more about the boat go to 
http://www.pastimeprincess.com.

The trip will depart at 4:00 a.m. from the dock beside the Dolphin View
Restaurant on Riverside Drive near Canal Street in downtown New Smyrna
Beach and return at 7:00 pm.  You must be on the boat 15 minutes prior
to departure; the boat will not wait for anyone who is late.
Participants must bring their own food and beverages, no food service
will be available. 
See the attached flyer for details.

Thanks,
Michael
