While fishing in the ocean a few miles south of Napeague, we encountered
close to a thousand shearwaters working the bait-filled water. Most were
great shearwater, but there were 50 or more Cory's and a few Wilson's
storm-petrels, as well as the expected terns and gulls. The biggest treat
may have been the whales (pretty sure one was a humpback and one a fin),
which hung out with us for several hours.
