Status:

Maryland received its unexpected first record of Masked Booby on 8/21/2016 when Mikey Lutmerding spotted a flyby on a Maryland pelagic trip (#2016-038). Another offshore report from 10/7/2011 was compelling but lacked sufficient documentation for acceptance by the MD/DCRC (#2011-386).

There is 1 record in the project database.
