      Greetings Calbirders,

      Monterey Bay has had an interesting contrast of late, a combination of
      HORNED PUFFINS and BROWN BOOBIES. It is hard to say if some of the
      puffins were repeats but it is possible that as many as 9 have been
      reported in 2007, the last wast reported on March 27.

      See Don Roberson's Monterey Highlights at:
      http://montereybay.com/creagrus/MTY_2007.html

      There have also been 5 well documented reports of BROWN BOOBIES, 3 in
      Santa Cruz County and 2 more in Monterey. The last was reprorted last
      Wednesday. Some of these may be repeats but there has been a juvenile,
      and both an adult female and male reported.

      Killer Whales have been seen in impressive numbers with 60 Southern
      Residents present on March 25 & 26 and 40 Transients feeding on a Gray
      Whale calf carcass on April 6. This time of year gives you the best
      chance of seeing Killer Whales here with Gray Whale calf and mother
      pairs migrating through the bay. Humpback Whales are just now arriving
      the bay too.

      This last week a LAYSAN ALBATROSS was reported and the first of the
      season FLESH-FOOTED SHEARWATER. MARBLED MURRELETS have also been seen a
      few times on the Monterey side of the bay lately.

      Monterey Seabirds has the first trip of the year scheduled for this
      Sunday, April 22. There are a few spots still avalaible. Cost is still
      $85 per person. Don Roberson and Todd Easterla will be spotting. Call
      831 375-4658 to reserve or do it online at:

      Cheers,
