This is the voice of NJ Audubon for Thursday, June 8, 1995,
with reports of BLACK-NECKED STILT, CURLEW SANDPIPER, BROWN
PELICAN, WHITE PELICAN, seasonal and local breeding
reports, and a reminder about the Rhode Island

Canyon; first that.
Only 16 places remain on the "super-pelagic." The cruise
ship has staterooms and good meals; good possibilities are
Band-rumped and White-faced Storm Petrels, Bridled Tern,
Tropicbird, Black-capped Petrels, and the regular seabirds.
