"Oregon's pelagic waters can support some of the most spectacular concentrations of seabirds in the world."

Few people realize that there is a whole new world of strange and wonderful birds just a few miles off shore of Oregon's beaches. The pelagic birds here rarely approach land, except at their remote and isolated breeding locations scattered around the entire Pacific Ocean. An organized pelagic trip is the best way to see these marvelous Oregon seabirds.

At length did cross an Albatross, Through the fog it came;...
It ate the food it ne'er had eat, And round and round it flew.
