Monterey Seabirds, Sunday May 20
- Ahoy Seabirders,
Monterey Seabirds will be venturing out to sea in three weeks on Sunday,
May 20. This is the only trip running out of Monterey this spring. Our
prior spring trips have yielded such rarities as MURPHY'S PETRELS
(2009), HORNED and TUFTED PUFFINS (2007), LAYSAN (2010) and SHORT-TAILED
ALBATROSSES (2007). Trip reports at:
AL Jaramillo has reported a spectacular season for MANX SHEARWATERS in
Chile this year, they were seen on nearly every pelagic out of
Valparaiso starting in February. They should be heading northward. It
will be interesting to see if they show up here in Monterey Bay this spring.
We have also had good luck in seeing transient-type Killer Whales on our
spring trips. This May trip will be taking place during the peak time
for seeing them out of Monterey.
