SoCal Deep Water Pelagic May 9-11
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.
