Pelagic Birds

Two young, hotshot birders from Connecticut took a round-trip on the New London-Orient Point Ferry yesterday specifically to look for pelagic birds in Connecticut's portion of Long Island Sound, and came away with a sighting of seven Wilson's storm-petrels.

One of the birders, Nick Bonomo, then wrote about it on his blog (called Shorebirder, here), which turns ot to be fun to read if you're into birds. (I also liked and identified with one of the items in his list of ways he spends his time: "...watching the Mets blow a 5-run lead.")

Dozens of Wilson's storm-petrels were in the Sound, off Stamford, four years ago, by the way.
