Snouty McSnouster's Pelagic Tour: Wilson's Storm Petrel

I went with Snouty on his fishing boat to catch Sea Bass and Fluke as well as trying to get some lifer pelagics.  In the marsh we saw a couple of Clapper Rails and when we got out of the inlet, Mike saw 2 Petrels that I missed.  Luckily later on I saw one for my lifer.  The only other birds out there were Laughing and Great Black Backed Gulls.

When we got back to shore we went to the Jones Beach Ponds where Snouty got his lifer White Rumped Sandpiper.  The other highlight was a Pectoral Sandpiper.
