Monterey CBC pelagic
- Richard Ternullo and I would like to extend an invitation to join us
aboard the Pt. Sur Clipper for the pelagic portion of the the Monterey
Peninsula Audubon Christmas Bird Count next Thursday the 28th of
December from 8am until noon. Cost is $33 with the $5 count fee that
will get you a free dinner.
Don't let the prospect of inclement weather deter you. If the seas are
rough we will hug the shoreline and do our best not to poach birds from
the the shore based observers.
Those of all experience levels are welcome
It looks is a good year for Ancient Murrelets and Black-vented
Shearwaters. Just this week 5 species of shearwaters were reported by
Richard on a whale watch trip.
Call 831 375-4658 to reserve a spot or you can do it online through the
Monterey Seabird site at http://www.montereyseabirds.com
Wishing you all a happy holiday!
Soquel Canyon, CA
- Skipper Richard Ternullo and I would like to invite any interested
birders to join us on the pelagic portion of the Monterey CBC on Monday,
Dec. 29th. The boat will be leaving the dock at the very civilized hour
of 10am as we will be joining the daily Monterey Bay Whale Watch. We
will return to the dock about 1pm. Cost is $34 per person with an
additional $5 for the count fee.
We will have several very experienced sets of eyes on board and hope to
see some interesting winter seabirds: Black-legged Kittiwake, Ancient
Murrelet and Short-tailed Shearwaters to name a few. Last year we had a
Manx Shearwater and rarities seen in past years include Yellow-billed
Loon and Flesh-footed Shearwater. We will likely see some migrating Gray
