Where were you when you saw the Shearwaters? In what direction were they heading?

I don’t see any from Cliff House now

Yes, the Sooty shearwaters are moving in insane number right now. Joachim who is with me counted 2,000 per minute.

I filmed the first few clips from Sutro Bath, and then I went to Ocean Beach ( around Lincoln). The birds were moving north and I walked with them a little bit. I filmed the video between 6 and 8. I do not know if the birds are there at daytime. 

Mila.

What time did you take the video? Were you standing on the walkway to the Cliff House?

Do you know if the shearwaters are also around in the middle of the day or the afternoon?

Tonight there was a humpback too.

Did somebody see whales here or in Half-Moon-Bay?
Thanks.

Sooty Shearwater update.

Josiah Clark
 

Not sure when they were last reported, but now they are very close to shore at the cliff house. A real spectacle. Presumably feeding on anchovies. Also lots of cormorants, pelicans and other birds mixed in.

They were feeding probably on anchovies. My zoom is 800.
Best.

Any idea what they were feeding on?

I am also curious as to what the power of magnification was for the video?

Thanks

Nighthawk 6/17 Russian Hill

Keith Maley
 

Nighthawk sp. seen out my window in Russian Hill at 8:32 pm 6/17. Dark bird with long, pointed wings flying low over a building, chased by a crow. Flew higher and closer in a darting, erratic and buoyant flight. White wing bars and white throat became visible as it flew directly overhead. No vocalization, and I could not confidently pick up on the exact placement of the wing bar on the outer half of the wing given its fast flight pattern. (No vocalization would suggest Lesser?) Flew West, gaining altitude against a clear sky.

Re: Franklins gull at crissy/ correction to Laughing Gull

H Cotter
 


Thanks to notes from Alvaro and Peter - looking at this in more detail it looks like it was an adult Laughing Gull and not Franklins. 
The primaries and very black with little or no white in them, including in flight and the bird looked elongated - eye crescents we’re narrower than expected for franklins. 
I will post the my additional really bad photos on entire later on.
Hopefully it will show up again - two laughing Gulls at Crissy
