A pelagic participant's view

Dall's Porpoise
Oh, if only more of our trips had such smooth seas! A Dall's Porpoise surfaces as a Pink-footed Shearwater glides by. Photographed off Newport, Oregon August 8, 2009 by Greg Gillson.

Erik Gauger, one of our participants on last August's Perpetua Bank trip from Newport, Oregon, blogs about his first pelagic birding experience on his Notes from the Road.

I must say the photos and narration on Erik's site are magnificent. My photos are decent pictures of birds, while his photos are artwork with an emotional appeal with a bird as the center piece to tie it together. How does he do that?

The trip report from this August 8, 2009 trip are on The Bird Guide's pelagic web site.

My photos from the trip are on my pBase photo gallery site.
