  • As of 1PM, Tuesday, according to Dave Povey et al., at least TWO of the adult NAZCA BOOBIES remain on San Diego Bay. One is on the water near the National City navy shipyard and likely visible only from a boat (which Dave was on), and the other is the most reliable bird remaining on one of the line of short, white buoys with the two orange stripes and the "5 mph" marking that is...

  • For those contemplating a chase for the Nazca Booby on San Diego Bay tomorrow, I'd suggest arriving at first light, if possible. And check from the west side of the Bay at the end of Grand Caribe at Coronado Cays or from Attu Avenue just a bit to the north from there. Hopefully the light won't be too terrible. (Probably will be better from Grand Caribe given the angle.) Each time...

  • For those interested, especially ones living or visiting Del Norte and Humboldt Counties, be aware that there is an invasion involving WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILLS currently taking place along the immediate COAST in Washington and Oregon. It has been a long time since such has happened in Oregon. Singles and small-to-medium-sized flocks have been found now as far south as Tillamook, and...

  • The numbers I posted yesterday (01 Dec) for the "Star Princess" cruise-ship transect off OR (and earlier CA) were low, for the entire group; and careful, constantly-scoping birders added a lot more individuals for some species. So the "final" totals for the day for the more interesting species were: Short-tailed Albatross: 5 (all first-year and one probable second-year), including...

  • A slow Nov 30th off California (MTY to SON) aboard a northbound Princess cruise-ship from Los Angeles to Vancouver was highlighted by a mere 2 LAYSAN Albatrosses, 3 Buller's Shearwaters, lots of fulmars, and single Fork-tailed, Leach's, and Ashy Storm-petrels. But Dec 1st, spent entirely off the Oregon coast from northern Curry Co. to the WA border was phenomenal, with 5 SHORT...

  • The Stockton cormorant is another in a string of interesting cormorant sightings in North America over the past several years involving birds thought possibly to be young Neotropic Cormorants but which may or may not be young Double-cresteds, or hybrids. Some juvenile Double-cresteds appear to have more limited (or, more likely, duller) orange to the gular and especially little or...

  • The northwest-bound (San Francisco to se. Alaska) "Grand Princess" was well off Humboldt and Del Norte Counties from 6-10 AM on 09 May, before continuing on into Oregon waters. Highlights were a total of 25 MURPHY'S PETRELS (18 Humboldt, 7 Del Norte), as well as an Arctic Tern and a group of 3 Greater Scaup heading north some 107 km west of Trinidad, HUM. As we departed San...

  • A cruise-ship pelagic with ca. 20 birders aboard the "Coral Princess" between Los Angeles and Vancouver was between southern Monterey and central Mendocino Counties on 3 May. Highlights included: HAWAIIAN PETREL: total of 5, with excellent views and photos (1 San Mateo, 2 San Francisco, 2 Mendocino) MURPHY'S PETREL: total of at least 7, ditto views/photos (1 Monterey, 2 San...
