Below: A solitary dolphin was leaving the inlet in the late afternoon, and it or another was seen north of the large pier to the north 20 minutes later. Some documentation photos might permit ID to species, but it looked more like an Atlantic Bottlenose than a Common. My Bottlenose Dolphin records from Maryland range from 5/31 to 10/11. One cetacean expert pointed out the Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins do occasionally winter locally (more so in Virginia). - Ocean City Inlet (2/26/2011).

Below: Documentation shots of a distant Sooty/Short-tailed Shearwater - Maryland's first winter record (2/26/2011). Unfortunately, these are the only photos of the bird, which was on the horizon and barely visible with the naked eye! A great spot by Mikey Lutmerding.

Below: Ocean City as seen from the eiders hiding south of the south jetty. When the Morning Star took us to the south side of the jetty to have a look, we found... [drumroll]... some scoters.
