- For the second day in a row, hundreds of Sooty Shearwaters are passing by
the Little River Headlands close to shore. Among them I've picked out a few
Pink-footed and Buller's Shearwaters.

21 August 2017 (Monday) - Lots of Shearwaters flying north (mostly) off the Mendocino Headlands, some fairly close in. I counted 47 in a few minutes of scoping. I think they were all Sooty Shearwater, but there were also some farther out that I couldn't ID. Also three Rhinoceros Auklets flew by, and a group of four small dark birds flying very close to the water in a flap-and-glide pattern, possibly Petrels.
The big female Peregrine Falcon is back on her usual roosting spot on top of Goat Rock off the north headland.
