Observation details

INSANE NUMBERS OFFSHORE. This is (in my opinion) an unprecedented movement of this species this far offshore. At least 10 feeding flocks numbered in the 500-750 range, and many, many more birds in flight and sitting on the water. Photos/video to be posted. Video of feeding flock: http://tinyurl.com/y69qqb4f
