a research cruise off central CA is recording numbers of Murphy's and Cook's Petrels, as well as one Short-tailed Albatross. There are still a few spots (3 or so) for this weekend's deepwater trip out of Santa Barbara. While birds off central CA do not guarantee this trip will see them, we have had pretty good luck on the Condor Express with last year's trip recording both species.
