As many of you have figured out by now I’m once again back in full chase mode. Or as we say in Quebec “mode poursuite intensive”. I’ll be on an early morning flight tomorrow to Boston where Doug Koch has once again volunteered to pick me up. Saturday and Sunday we’ve got back-to-back pelagic trips. Saturday we will sail out of Rhode Island and Sunday we base out of Hyannis. The Great Skua is our target species. I need it as a year-bird and Doug, who’s one hell of a photographer, wants photos of it. Sunday evening immediately after the pelagic trip has finished we will drive to Logan International Airport, pick up Ken Peterson and head to the Chambly basin for the Graylag Goose. Rumor has it Bland Liz and the Hitman may make an appearance. Stay tuned.
