La Jolla Cove - Blue-footed Booby (maybe two?), 13 Sep 2013
- A lucky day for me at La Jolla Cove! Embarking on a lunch time plan to look for Blue-footed Booby there I spotted possibly two individuals, one seen close enough for photography. The first bird appeared semi-distant to the south at 12:18 pm, but flew off strongly southward much to my annoyance. I then spotted another at 12:38 pm, flying out of the cove to the north of my observation position. This one circled with pelicans plunge diving, much closer by the kelp, and settled on the water for a while and other birders arrived to take a look.
Some photographs of the second "closer encounter" posted on my blog at this link http://www.sandiegobirding.com/?p=3030Pacific Beach
