      G'Day, Seabirders,

      Recently back from "down under" on the Great Barrier Reef and I'm ready for
      some California seabirding! Shearwater Journeys has two spring pelagic trips
      coming up, both with spaces available: April 15 and May 27. Both trips
      depart from Monterey and will head out to the Submarine Canyon. Spring is
      probably the most underated season for seabirding. This is a great time of
      the year to see the birds in "high" plumage¬čthe Pomarine Jaegers are
      particularly spiffy.

      Some of the species that we might encounter include: Black-footed and Laysan
      (rare) Albatross; Sooty, Pink-footed, Manx (rare), and Flesh-footed
      Shearwaters; Ashy and Fork-tailed Storm-Petrels (possible); Brandt's and
      Pelagic Cormorants; Red and Red-necked Phalaropes; Pomarine Jaeger; Sabine's
      Gull; Arctic and Elegant Terns; Common Murre; Pigeon Guillemot; Xantus'
      Murrelet; Cassin's and Rhinoceros Auklets; Tufted Puffin (rare), and a
      variety of marine mammals, especially Humpback Whales. We will, of course,
      look for the reported Yellow-billed Loon.

      Please make an advance reservation with Debra Shearwater at the details
      below. Both trips depart from Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey at 7 am and
      return about 3 pm.

      Aside from the lovely Giant Clams and gorgeous tropical fish, the best bird
      during two weeks on the Great Barrier Reef was a TAHITI PETREL for me! Best
      bird on the Sydney pelagic trip was a GREY TERNLET. Have to admit, I loved
      seeing all those GREAT-WINGED PETRELS, though!

      Shearwaters forever,
