Masked or Nazca Booby? (Los Angeles, CA)

Recommended Posts

The booby is still hanging out on the R10/PV10 navigation buoy, 4 days after I first spotted him. Today I brought a better camera. He was very tolerant of my picture taking while busily preening. Hoping you folks can determine the species from these photos. If not, I'll have to get back out there with an even better camera ?

One photo included for entertainment purposes; the young gull was exhibiting begging behavior. The booby completely ignored him.

Photos taken today, 9/6, at 33.773N, 118.445W (offshore of Rocky Point, Palos Verdes Peninsula, Southern California).
