Results: Pt. Pleasant – Sun, Feb 9, 2020

Here is the day list from our Feb 9, 2020 Pt Pleasant, NJ pelagic. The weather was FINALLY nice for us to get offshore and get some great pelagic birds. Highlights were cooperative Puffins, good Dovekies, a Glaucous and and Iceland Gull that practically hung on top of the boat, and a great Gannet show. Odd were no Northern Fulmar, low Kittiwake numbers, and extremely low Common Dolphin numbers. Every year is different.

This list the cumulative totals reported by all leaders. A big thanks to our participants who were working hard to find birds as well. It’s a team effort out there.
