“It was kind of an interesting community because they were all working together to spot these birds,” says freelance photographer Aram Boghosian, who spent a chilly Monday morning shooting pictures of the hardy birders for the Globe aboard a three-hour winter wildlife cruise in Boston Harbor. “When someone would see one, they’d yell out and point and even announce it over the PA: ‘Razorbill, 4 o’clock!’ ” Boghosian recalls. “In this picture, specifically, I remember we were heading out, and I saw the Boston skyline in the background and thought, ‘I’ve got to get that in one of the photos.’ It was on the top level, so it was particularly cold up there, because there’s nothing to block the wind. You’re just out in the open.”
