Yeah..we saw it!
Corporation Beach~Dennis, Ma.
We missed this bird a few days ago…timing just wasn’t right.
Tonight around seven~ on our way back to Chatham from a long day out with Jeff's 91 year old mother..
I went on my itouch…
A facebook friend,Dan Furbish, had posted on my wall fifteen minutes earlier that the Brown Booby was being seen at Corporation Beach and to get my butt over there…
This is what he wrote
Dawn, I just got a phone call. The Brown Booby is being seen right NOW on Corporation beach in Dennis, MA. GO u will still have light !!
We were cutting it close~it was around seven..we were at least fifteen minutes away…The sun would be setting in a half hour….We had a quart of Ice-cream in the car…which we promptly put into a cooler and put things in high gear, hoping to make it there before it got dark or the bird flew.
We made it to the beach just as the sun was setting, I dashed out of the car and ran to where I saw birders…
My photo of the Brown Booby..right side of rock..

Immature Brown Booby
He digiscoped a few for me..
I will never be in his league..
but that’s ok..
check it out!
Alex let us look thru his scope for some nice views of the bird.
Jeff's mom, was a trooper, She had to climb up and down this area to see the bird..
Special thanks to Dan Furbish for letting me know about the Brown Booby!
