La Jolla Cove, July 29, 2019—ho-hum


Stan Walens
 

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]
0 alcids

A visiting couple from Pennsylvania saw a FOS black turnstone.
