Bermuda Trip Report
Allison Black and I are recently back from 5 full days in Bermuda, where we were in search of Bermuda Petrels (AKA Cahows), among other things! Yes, we succeeded in seeing the birds, including a seawatch that tallied 25+ individuals! Unfortunately, both of our boat trips were canceled due to weather, so we were unable to see them up close and personal.
Though not a classically hardcore birding trip (we mixed birding and relaxation), I put together a brief report for independent traveling birders who are looking to do Bermuda on their own. It is meant to be just a starting point. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to email me.
Of course, for those wishing to truly maximize their time with the petrels, I would recommend joining Bob Flood's "Cahow Experience" tour. Contact him via http://www.scillypelagics.com/. I have not taken his tour but have heard fantastic things and have no doubt that this is the best way to observe this species.
