More Cook's Petrels

I saw 10 Cook's Petrels below Ensenada yesterday. Although a bit farther from home down the Baja coast. I was surprised at how close to shore the Cook's Petrels were seen. Maybe 12-15 n.miles
Also had a Black-footed Albatross there, as well a 5 getting late breeding plumageĀ  Red Phalaropes, and the only Pomarine Jaeger I've seen in a while.
Also of note was an adult alternate plumage Heermann's Gull, and post breeding Royal Tern, among the usual expected sea birds.
