Black-legged Kittiwakes, and oystercatcher typo

Black-legged Kittiwakes, and oystercatcher typo
By – 3:10 pm
First off, a small but major typo on my part in my previous post about local hybrid oystercatchers and the jehl score. The first score given to the Mission Bay jetties bird should have been stated as being 29-31, not 39-41 !!  If it had been the latter, then the bird would have been pure as the proverbial driven snow! Second, I have heard from Bridget S. that two more kittiwakes have been seen in the past couple hours at La Jolla. So, if folks are still looking for this species, either later today or tomorrow morning, following the all-night forecast moderate west winds, should be promising. I did hear rumor that a seawatch conducted yesterday up in the Monterey area produced a couple hundred kittiwakes.–Paul Lehman, San Diego
