  1. Nothing too spectacular on the Ponce Inlet pelagic trip yesterday. A few Gannets and Brown Booby, 3-4 Parasitic and 9-10 Pomarine Jaegers, 4 Audubon’s Shearwaters, ~60 Cory’s Shearwaters, 3 Bridled Terns, 2 Sooty Terns, and some Common Terns. A lone Common Loon was inside the inlet near the dock. No scoters near the coast, or Phalaropes offshore. Great views of the birds though. A 100′ boat with a second deck can be a great vantage point. We’ll see if a respectable cold front ever gets down here to push some birds our way, even if they turn back when they’s realized they’ve gone too far.
