Pelagics

Southern Giant-petrel (juvenile) Macronectes giganteus ©Ian Montgomery Website

Birders are not only an intrepid lot, they also seem to need constant stimulation. Not content to see the birds inhabiting their (or anyone else's) land, they must go to see to see the seabirds too!

Opportunities exist on board cruises, ferries and other normal sea traffic and a storm may bring the birds to your shore but, in some parts of the world, there are especially organised pelagic excursions just to bird watch.

A few are regular events such as the Scillonian pelagics off UK's Cornish coast in search of Petrels or off South Yorkshire for Shearwaters and Skuas (Jaegers). Others are one-off trips advertised for those wan pelagics off Broome (Australia).

In other places such as Cape Town, California & New Zealand there are regular pelagics often combining whale-watching with the birds

Below are some websites that pelagic birders should find of use… as always the Fat Birder welcomes suggestions for other entries for this page.

See Life Paulagics

Tour Operator

I formed this company for completely selfless reasons; my friends and I wished to go pelagic birding at the times and in the places that we wanted to go. Since only a few trips were being run in the Mid-Atlantic region each year, our choices were to do without the trips we wanted, spend a lot of money chartering our own boats, or form a pelagic tour company. Well, the first choice was unacceptable and the second too expensive, so here we are. Though we emphasize the seabirds, our trips focus on all sea life. We take time for whales, dolphins, sea turtles, fish, and anything else that we find of interest at sea. On each trip there are enough leaders for the group size. Leaders are chosen not only for their pelagic experience, but also for their abilities to help you with spotting and identifying the life forms that are found…

2004 [August] - Mark How - Biscay

Report

An early rise and on deck for 7am conditions were a bit blowy and things started slow, a few gannets and an occasional dolphin to spark interest. The first bird of interest was a sooty shearwater, Things picked up and a great shearwater was picked up. I missed the next great shear that was much closer in buying lunch. The afternoon provided more dolphins mostly common although a few bottle nosed showed quite well. The first fin whale appeared very close to the boat, and was followed by many more during the afternoon and evening. I missed some pilot whales which was a bit disappointing, I also missed a dogfish sp. The first hitchhiker put in its appearance a willow warbler on the chimney of the boat. A group of storm petrels showed reasonably close in along with some tuna. Several other small groups of stormy and individuals were spotted from time to time. This was followed by another hitchhiker a wheatear that seemed to stay for the rest of the journey. A great shearwater was sat on the sea very close to the boat giving excellent views before it flew. A bonxie and a pale phase artic skua took attention away from the regular stream of fin whales and some unidentified roqual whales. One fin whale surfacing as close to the boat as possible without hitting it. A sunfish passed by glimmering in the evening sun. The last bird of the evening was a common tern sat on a pallet as it floated by. The sun set and that was it for the day…

2004 [February] - Tony Pym - Antarctica, South Georgia, the Falkland Islands and Argentina’

Report

There had been heavy snow with treacherous icy roads. Some airports in the UK, and in other parts of Europe, had closed. I travelled earlier than planned to Heathrow in case of any problems on the roads or at the airport. I arrived at Heathrow at 1600, four hours before our scheduled departure, and many of the group were already in the terminal having had the same thoughts as myself. Air France advised that our flight could have problems connecting with the one to Argentina and suggested we took earlier flights to Paris…

Most birders will know the story behind the enigmatic and near-mythical Fiji Petrel. Unrecorded from the type specimen taken in 1855 until 1984 when Dick Watling had the extraordinary experience, when spotlighting, of a bird crash-landing into his head! Breeding is suspected on the small island of Gau…

2009 [April] - Tony Pym - Western Pacific Odyssey

Report

New Zealand, New Caledonia, Solomon Islands, Caroline Islands, Bonin Islands, Izu Islands and Japan …Many were out, on the decks, before breakfast to get their birding lists underway. Black Petrels were common and a couple of Flesh-footed Shearwaters started the first debate on identification between these two. Pterodroma petrels, the dynamic gadfly petrels, were distant, and most, if not all, had to be Cook's Petrels, though a later bird did show good qualities to be a Pycroft's - these two have plumage and field features that directly overlap…

2016 [February] - Alan Tate - Buenos Aires to Los Angeles cruise

Report

...So at the end of February we arrived in Buenos Aires, the day before our huge cruise liner was due to sail. A quick look at Costanera reserve was in order, but sadly "progress" has reared it's ugly head in the ten years since our previous visit. Most of the same species are still there, but the trails have been widened, the marsh area is much more vegetated and difficult to view. Whilst this is obviously better for birds the trails are now in use to a large extent by joggers and cyclists, so many birds are now staying hidden that used to be easily viewed. However, it's still worth a visit if you've never been before....

2015 [December] - Chris Collins - Mexico Pelagic

PDF Report

The main focus of this ‘world first’ voyage was to look for two of the rarest and most localised seabirds on the planet, Townsend’s Shearwater and Ainley’s Storm-petrel, and we had great success with good views of both species...

Populated by a friendly community of just over 2000 islanders, sub-tropical Scilly has tranquillity and a quality of life long lost to less isolated places. Exotic plants and wild flowers, ancient cairns and crumbling castles, sparkling white sands by an azure sea - all just 28 miles from Land’s End in the south-west corner of the UK.

Seabirds - Project Puffin

The National Audubon Society started Project Puffin in 1973 in an effort to learn how to restore puffins to historic nesting islands in the Gulf of Maine. At that time, literally all the puffin eggs in Maine were in two baskets - Matinicus Rock and Machias Seal Island. Although puffins are not an endangered species (they are abundant in Newfoundland, Iceland, and Britain); they are rare in Maine. The two surviving colonies were very vulnerable to a disaster such as an oil spill, or accidental establishment of predators such as rats or mink.

Seawatching - Madeira

Website

The numbers of European birdwatchers that visit the Madeira archipelago have increased dramaticly in recent years. The reasons for this are many and varied. The main reason to visit Madeira has always been the endemic bird species and races. The second reason, and probably the most important one, is the excellent opportunity to seawatch from the mainland or boat crossings between the nearby islands. The hot spot Porto Moniz, which is the number one site for seawatching, is certainly the good reason for many birders to visit Madeira. However, Madeira offers easy birding and is a perfect destination for a combined holiday. Every birding site or boat trip has something for everyone!

Pelagic - New Zealand - Land and Pelagic Trips

Website

I am a Kiwi by birth and inclination, and, as an excuse to get back home and to show New Zealand and its birds to others, I run a birding tour to New Zealand in November of alternating years. I charge enough to cover costs; making money on these tours is not my priority. I like to keep the group to 8-10 in size. We stay at quality accommodations and the food is outstanding; the trips have been described more than once as culinary tours of New Zealand with some birding thrown in, or as eating our way around New Zealand. But seriously, the quality of New Zealand restaurant food and wines is outstanding these days. The tours are not physically strenuous, but we do keep moving, and so you must be reasonably active and in fairly good shape.

The combination of these elements within a semi-protected bay makes Monterey a worldwide destination for pelagic birding. Just a few miles from shore one can observe pelagic seabirds that travel across both the hemisphere and the ocean to feed in these bountiful waters.
