Beat the heat
- Hello, Birders,
Beat the heat, and take a boat trip. Hopefully, we will find some cooler
weather out at sea. Our Sep 11 trip from Monterey is sold out. But, we still
have space on the Friday, Sep 10 trip from Bodega Bay. Researchers (some of
them Shearwater Journey's leaders) have recently reported huge masses of
seabirds near Bodega Canyonup to 6,000 storm-petrels alone, including Ashy,
Black, Wilson's (up to 40), Fork-tailed, and Least. If you would like to go,
just show up at Port O' Bodega at 6 am. The boat, the New Sea Angler, will
depart about 6:30 am and return about 5 pm.
We still have space on the Sunday Albacore trip from Monterey on Sep 12.
This trip runs from 5:30 am til 5:30 pm. Be at Chris' Fishing Shop on
Fisherman's on Fisherman's Wharf at 5:15 am. We have only a limited number
of spaces open on the Monday, Sep 13th trip from Monterey. This trip runs
from 7am til 3 pm. Please call, or email me, if you are interested in
The September 21 trip from Crescent City has been canceled due to the
skipper having to take time off to recover from an illness. There is space
on the Sunday, Sep 19th trip from Fort Bragg. For county listers, not only
will we hope to find some good Mendo County seabirds, but we will head up
the coast to pick up some seabirds in Humboldt County as well.
