Shearwaters and Northern Fulmars.....

The Seawatch at Tom Renick Park in Ormond Beach is going strong. Harry Robinson is compiling an impressive record of the birds that are seen from this beachside park, both from landside and over the ocean. These reports are available on our website. Harry welcomes company while observing. Bring your scope to follow along as the birds can move very fast. It's like a pelagic trip without the swells.

In addition to Ormond Beach, Harry has joined with Kim Ramos and Sam Krah on Tuesday afternoons at Dunlawton Bridge. Together they have compiled their observations into a concise spreadsheet that is available now on the website. They have been meeting at 4PM, but may "Fall Back" to 3PM with the time change.

As always, the complete series of reports for the Lake Apopka Restoration area and for Audubon Park are archived here on the website.
