Black-capped Petrels, Leach’s Storm-Petrels, Band-rumped Storm-Petrel, and Sabine's Gull - Pelagic Trip, Ponce de Leon Inlet, Volusia County, FL - 9/18/11

Hi All,

A lot of good pelagic species were seen during a pelagic trip out of Ponce de Leon Inlet in Volusia County, Florida on 9/18. A major highlight was that a very large number of Black-capped Petrels were seen. Other highlights included Leach’s Storm-Petrels, a Band-rumped Storm-Petrel, and a Sabine’s Gull, many other pelagic species were seen.

Warbler species were seen as well, one even landed on the boat, and came into the cabin!
