Monday, October 10 Dockside 7:30 am for an 8 am departure from Rye Harbor, NH—MV Granite State
In past years the October pelagic out of Rye harbor has ventured into MA, NH, and ME waters and has turned up interesting birds including four species of Shearwater (Great, Manx, Cory’s, and Sooty), 2 species of Phalarope (Red-necked and Red), Pomarine Jaeger, Northern Fulmar, Leach’s Storm- petrel and other species such as Atlantic Puffin, Razorbill, and Dovekie. (But obviously as with any trip no bird species is guaranteed or should to be expected!). Veteran birder Steve Mirick will lead the all-day trip. The cost is $75 per person to cover fuel, boat time, and the cost of chum.
Registration is limited to 50 and participants should be fully vaccinated. As the event nears, for additional details and to sign-up, visit the Seacoast Chapter website.
