It was enjoyable to share Christmas with Linda and friends, but now I’m in the air once again. Hatteras, NC is my destination and one last pelagic trip for 2011. Its a quest for the Great Skua with the Admiral of the Atlantic, Brian Patteson. Unfortunately, Brian has postponed the boat trip till Wednesday. The forecasted winds for Tuesday are too brisk and Wednesday is forecasted to be better. This means that after the pelagic trip, I’ll have to scrub the Hooded Crane and fly directly from Norfolk to Phoenix to chase the Nutting’s Flycatcher. Stay tuned I’ll post again tomorrow.
I wish to thank all of you for your support. Your comments are all inspirational.
