Went out on the Hornblower today.
There were almost no birds of any kind anywhere.
About 100 Black-venteds and 6 storm-petrels, 5 Blacks, 1 Ashy
The 9-Mile bank was lifeless. 2 Pink-footed shearwaters were almost the only birds there except for Western gulls and a very few terns.
On the way back into dock, we looked for the Nazca booby that was reported on August 26.
I saw it roosting among gulls on one of the fishing piers, the one that has the fake coyote on its northern edge.
