Buena Vista Audubon pelagic trip Sunday Oct. 4th.

Hello all,

This notice is for the upcoming Buena Vista Audubon Pelagic Trip, on Oct. 4, 2020. This is the last regular scheduled pelagic out of San Diego for 2020.
The passenger load load on this trip is exceedingly light with only 11 reservations. We plan to go.
We have not had great quantities of birds this fall, but quality has been quite good.  
Such as ;
A Buller's Shearwater off Sunset Cliffs Sept. 19th.
Least Storm-Petrels, 1 on 8-16, and  6 on 9-19. 
Townsend's Storm-Petrel on 8-31.
Nazca Booby  9-7, 
Red-footed Booby  9-19
Long-tailed Jaeger   1 on 8-2, 1 on 8-16, 1 on 9-19.
Craveri's Murrelets    4 on 8-16  with 4 more murrelet sp. that day
Sabine' Gull  8-16, 8-31, 9-7, 9-19
Arctic Tern  2 on 8-16
We have also seen expected Pink-footed, Sooty, and Black-vented Shearwaters, Black, Ashy and Leach's Storm-Petrels, Brown Booby, Pomarine, and Parasitic Jaegers, Red and Red-necked Phalaropes
We also hope for Flesh-footed Shearwater, Red-billed Tropicbird, Guadalupe Murrelet. These are tough to get San Diego rarities but possible this time of year. So what surprise bird will we see? Land migrants can be possible offshore this time of year.
Also large whale species such as Blue, Fin, and Humpback Whales have been noted moving south offshore.
This trip is aboard the 80 ft. Legacy. The legacy has ample seating for social spacing.  We depart at 7 a.m. sharp.  Please be at the landing 45 mins. prior to sailing.  Return will be by or before 5 p.m.
This trip out of Seaforth Sportfishing Landing in Mission Bay.
Make your reservation at  go to the "Book Now" scroll down to the "3/4 day Birding Trip" Oct. 4th.. box, or call Seaforth Landing at 619 224-3383.
Price is $130 until Wednesday Sept. 30th. when the price goes up to $140 for "Late sign up" .
I hope we will see you onboard,
Dave Povey
