Yesterday afternoon, around 4:00 pm, 15.9 miles, 308 degrees from Fire
Island Inlet.

Just finishing up a day chumming for sharks with a Stony Brook U research
team when the bird did a fly-by over the chum slick.

I was originally unsure about the ID, but one of the others on board was a
grad student who specializes in marine birds, had prior experience with the
species, and confirmed that it was, in fact, a brown booby.
