RFI: Winter Pelagic trips out of Gloucester

Hi all,

Two Colorado birders here, coming to Cape Ann the last week in January to bird. We've read that pelagic trips sort of shut down in winter, but having come all this way, even a couple or three species only viewable by boat might well be worth our while.

Does anyone know of a pelagic service we might contact out of Gloucester that would run a half-day trip at that time of year?

Thanks in advance,

Dave in Denver

If you can come a bit earlier, the Brookline bird club has a pelagic scheduled for January 13:

Drat-- we're coming at the end of the month, and will miss that one.

Thanks though.

Ahh, who are we kidding. We want the sea birds. We've rescheduled and booked the boat! Dramamine and fleece pants, if it sails, we'll be on it.

Aaaaaannd-- it didn't. Great time, though, in a great place. Frome shore, on a 5-day trip, we got 6 lifers, 5 of which in the first 5 minutes of birding.

Common Eider
Harlequin Duck
Great Cormorant
Black-legged Kittiwake
Razorbill (my 700th bird)

And later, and further south, the Purple Sandpiper.

Highly recommend Cape Ann.
