We took a walk along the harbor in Baltimore on Saturday morning courtesy of our friend, Lois.
Despite the morning fog the day cleared off and it was quite nice to walk from Canton to Fells Point and back.
Along the way we saw several people training long lenses at something across the harbor. Our curiosity was piqued and we asked. Brown boobies had been sighted by a birder. Well, the story shared was that first an unknown bird was sighted, then the captain of one of these ships, sent a message (maybe a tweet?) that brown boobies, a bird of the tropics, were hanging around the lines between the ships.
Not having a telephoto lens here are my photos.
Here's one courtesy of the Baltimore Sun.

What a funny spot to take up residence far from their usual haunts. Wonder what's next in store for them?
