Deep Water Mega Rarity Pelagic Expedition - June 2-6, 2008
A true adventure awaits the curious and persistent birder!
The Mega Rarity Expedition is just what it says it is, a journey to
locate the rare and unusual. For those who have not ventured on this
trip before, the Mega Rarity Expedition can sometimes seem to be a
journey into the unknown. But in reality, you are in the hands of
expert birders who understand where they are and know how to find the
best and the rarest. You will hopefully see birds that you will talk
about for a lifetime.
There have not been many trips in June into the deep water. This is a
unique opportunity to see rare post breeding wanders (Mega Rarities!)
not normally seen in California waters. This five-day trip, which
offers optimal time in the mega zone, greatly increases the chance of
If you are a photographer, you will enjoy our very stable vessel, the
100 foot ¡§Searcher.¡¨ Photographing the rare birds and thrilling sea
life that you will see is a rewarding experience. You will have
visual evidence of great birding finds that, in times-to-come, you
can ponder and reminisce upon.
If you want to take advantage of this chance of a lifetime to see
these Mega Critters, reserve your spot before the boat is full. With
the gas prices soaring, these kinds of trips will undoubtedly go out
of sight in the not so distant future. Complimentary food and beds
are included in your trip price. Believe me, you have stayed in
hotels that cost more for this amount of time without food included.
The cincher? You couldn¡¦t step right out of bed to see pelagic birds!
Now that¡¦s a deal.
Just a few records of rare birds that have shown up along the
California Coast in June:
X Swallow-tailed Gull!
X Crested Auklet!
X Parakeet Auklet!
X Red-footed Booby, Masked Booby!
X Cook¡¦s Petrel!
X Hawaiian/Dark-rumped Petrel!
X Murphy¡¦s Petrel!
X Least Auklet!
X Sandwich, Bridled and Sooty Tern!
X Red-billed and White-tailed Tropicbird!
X Will we add to the list? I bet we do.
This is also a great time for other rarities of albatross,
procellarids, pterodromas, and tropicbirds. There are a lot of
possibilities out there, so let¡¦s search the haystack in June until
we find that needle or needles!
