Terrible viewing conditions. Overcast, gray skies; haze. No wind. Lots of birds, but swarming 2 miles out.
500-700 black-vented shearwaters
2 black storm-petrels
1 female or subadult brown booby
1 juvenile Heermann’s gull [on the rocks below my bench; first seen 2 days ago; my FOS]
A visiting couple from Pennsylvania saw a FOS black turnstone.
