      Hey CalBirders,
       
      Multiple Blue-footed Boobys have been sighted yesterday and today in Sonoma County.
       
      All the sightings are from Bodega Head.  Yesterday morning  (9-17) Alan Wight had an immature Blue -footed Booby foraging south of the Head at 7:30am and watched for 15-20 minutes.   Later in the morning, Dan Nelson had two Boobys flying north then south (around 9:30am)and later a single bird flying north (around 10:30am) .   There are photos of these birds posted.
       
      This morning (9-18),  an immature or subabult bird was first spotted by Jackie Sones flying north past the Head at 8:37am and another bird with crisper plumage was seen flying north at 9:45, first spotted by Dan Nelson.
       
      Based on the photos, the birds seen today could've been the same as two yesterday birds.  We had a minimum 3 to possibly 5 individuals.
