        Mendocino Coast Audubon Society Pelagic Trip

        May 22nd, 8am-3pm.

        $80.00 for non-members ($70.00 for members)



        A few spaces still remain for this trip out of Noyo Harbor in Fort Bragg.
        In late May, sightings should include many Sooty Shearwaters, some
        Pink-Footed Shearwaters, and many Black-Footed Albatrosses. Laysan
        Albatross is also possible There is a good chance to see any one of 3
        species of Storm-Petrels (Fork-Tailed, Leach's, Ashy). Among the Alcids, we
        should see Common Murres, Pigeon Guillemot, Cassin's Auklets, and perhaps
        Marbled Murrelets and Tufted Puffins close to shore. Red Phalaropes may
        still be around. There can be at least 5 species of dolphins possible, plus
        several species of whales and pinnepeds.



        But the special draw of any pelagic birding trip is the possibility of the
        unexpected appearance of an out-of-range visitor flying in from
        who-knows-where (Tasmania is not impossible), perhaps lingering to be
        admired and exclaimed over, before disappearing into the vast sky.
