May 8 Pelagic Update

 I am pleased to share the good news that our 6 hour pelagic from Newport on May 8 received sufficient sign-up this week to allow me to confirm this trip with the charter. This trip should allow us to witness the northward migration of Sabine's Gulls, jaegers, phalaropes (in their alternate plumage), as well as resident alcids. Our visiting tubenoses, particularly Black-footed Albatross, Northern Fulamr, Sooty Shearwater, and Pink-footed Shearwater, and perhaps Fork-tailed Storm-Petrel are also likely to be seen.  There are still a few spaces available at $115 a spot.

Possible Delays in Payment Confirmation

 If you have sent Oregon Pelagic Tours a payment and not yet received your confirmation, there is no cause for alarm. The West Linn Post Office closed in February, so all post office box holders must pick up their mail during business hours at the Gladstone Post Office. This is obviously not very convenient, so I will be making irregular trips to pick up my mail. No worries -- everything is secure, but there will be some delays.
