deepsea report - trip tomorrow
- Hi Calbirdos,
I just received an exciting E-mail from an individual who just spent 5 weeks on a cableship
off of socal (I'd heard they were out there).
The lucky guy reported Cookilaria Petrels in
late Oct. and early Nov., and an apparent
Dark-rumped Petrel on 11/21, all not far out.
We have chances of seeing these species and more,
tomorrow, 11/30 on the Condor Express deepwater
pelagic trip. The seas are forecast for 6' with
17 seconds (long) interval, and light variable
winds (little wind wave). Excellent conditions
for hunting deepwater rarities! Though there may
be a brief shower, I don't expect it, plus we
can outrun them in the XP. A good squall line at
sea is often loaded with birds moving on the
There are plenty of spaces so you can call today
(Sea Landing at 805-963-3564) or show up by
4:30 am tomorrow to their dock in S.Barbara with
the cash, check, or credit card, and come along!
If doing the sort of birding in which one is looking for things like Mottled Petrel, Parakeet Auklet, Red-tailed Tropicbird, Cook's or
Stejneger's Petrels, appeals to you, please
join us for what is sure to be a great (and
not rough) day in the deepwater on the Condor Express....
With the sets of eyes we have for leaders, and
the 40 MPH speed of the Condor XP, nothing should
escape us :):):)!
see ya asea,
