North Carolina (Outer Banks) Birding: May '07

Steve McConnell and I took a quick trip to the Outer Banks of NC, for 3 days of pelagic birding with Brian Patteson. It was more successful than either of us had hoped, with each of us getting 7 lifers. The pelagic birding was truly phenominal, and we also had a good day of landbirding our last day. Our lifers for the trip were:

Black-capped Petrel (Steve)
Fea's Petrel (both) My 600th ABA bird
Trindade (Herald) Petrel: (both)
Greater Shearwater: (both)
Manx Shearwater: (Mike)
Audubon's Shearwater: (Steve)
Arctic Tern: (both)
Roseate Tern: (both)
Purple Sandpiper: (Mike)

I took a lot of photos on the pelagics, and all in all they came out better than I had hoped. There are a lot of photos in this gallery, and they are arranged chronologically, not by species as I usually do it.
