On an overcast May day, Keith Mueller went out on the Gail Francis cod-fishing boat to Cox’s Ledge for a day of birding.  At one point a brown bird appeared out of the mist.  It circled the boat several times but then disappeared.  About an hour later the bird reappeared and landed on the top deck railing.  Keith was able to slowly approach the bird and eventually get to within a few feet.  All the while Keith was taking photos.  Those photos along with a detailed written report were submitted.
