      Greetings

      The only opportunity to bird in SoCal Deep Water this spring will be aboard Grande on May 9-11 chartered by the Buena Vista Audubon Society.

      VENT leader and author Brad Schram (American Birding Association's "A Birder's Guide To Southern California") will be a guest leader, joining SoCal leaders/guides/spotters and question-answerers Todd (Skua) McGrath, Paul (PAJA) Lehman, Jon (Tricolored Blackbird) Feenstra, Dave (Mountain Lion x 2) Pereksta and Chummer Wes (ole fishguts) Fritz.

      Grande will depart Point Loma at 6:00 a.m. Saturday morning, May 9, returning to the dock at 6:00 a.m. Monday morning in time to get to work on Monday. We'll enjoy 48 hours of solid pelagic birding time – a full day of it about 100 miles offshore – to see what's out there this spring.

      This trip may be the best opportunity this year for Murphy's Petrels in ABA waters and an opportunity for Cook's Petrel and Flesh-footed Shearwater. May is an excellent month for Ashy, Leach's and Black Storm-Petrels.

      Reserve on or before April 30 and save $40.
