I'm having problems getting the images to load with the proper caption.  I got an error message to contact the Admins.

Yes, a Sooty. How was the trip? If I remember, you weren't going with one of the main people who lead birding pelagics. Were you still able to get onto any good birds?

We did have a lot of birds, I didn't list the ones I couldn't see well or photograph, so my checklist is pretty small.  There were several birding guides on the trip, and all seemed to know their stuff.  One of the birding guides is the author of a book on Monterey pelagics.  Don Roberson was his name.    

Also--several Townsends Warblers were flocking around the boat and one flew into the cabin and stayed a good 30 minutes before flying out.  The birding guides said this was highly unusual to see passerines so far out from shore.

 

Birds that were called out that I am not personally listing included:  Manx & Pink-footed Shearwaters; Parasitic & Pomerine Jaegars; Northern Fulmar; Common & Arctic Tern

We also saw a Common Mola, Baird's Beaked Whale, and several humpbacks and were treated to a synchronized breaching of 2 of them.

Don is extremely knowledgeable and reliable. Ps- Manx Shearwater is a really good bird anywhere in California waters. They seem to be having a decent year out here right now. 
 

Beaked whale is a nice find too!

Don Roberson is trustworthy. He's mostly a state lister (He's at 621 for Cailfornia), but he definitely knows his pelagic species.
