December 2 (or 3) Newport pelagic has enough participants to go!

We are happy to announce that the winter pelagic scheduled out of Newport on December 2 (with December 3 as a weather date) has achieved the minimum sign-up that will allow us to run this trip. We did have a couple of people drop out, and so are hoping for a little more participation, but we are planning on going. This trip is arguably the best chance for birders to see Short-tailed Albatross, which is not guaranteed, but has been seen on past trips. Other seasonal specialities seen on this trip include Parakeet Auklet (once), Ancient Murrelet, Black-legged Kittiwake, and Short-tailed Shearwater. Not yet seen, but to be hoped for, would be Mottled Petrel -- is this the year?
