Buena Vista Audubon sponsored Birding Pelagic trip Oct. 22nd.

Buena Vista Audubon sponsored Birding Pelagic trip Oct. 22nd.
By – 10:50 am
Hello Birders,This is a reminder that the last 2022 BVAS sponsored pelagic birding trip is Saturday, Oct. 22nd.This trip is an often requested shorter 6 hr. trip and will visit inshore areas out to the Nine Mile Bank, perhaps slightly into the San Diego Trough, and north towards La Jolla as time allows.October can still produce some interesting birds offshore, such as the possibility for Buller’s and Flesh-footed Shearwaters, maybe a South Polar Skua. The 2022 season has produced a plethora of boobies, including Red-footed, Nazca, Brown, and even a scarce for us, Blue-footed Booby.  We’d expect to see some of the usual fall migrants, and we could get the first of the wintering species. Maybe even a land bird or two…?The trip departs at 7 a.m. and will return by 1 p.m. ( remember to arrive at the landing between 6 and 6:15 a.m.). The price is $105. We will be aboard the comfortable 80 ft, Legacy. Reservations can be made at www.sdwhale.com or call Seaforth Sportfishing Landing at 619 224-3383. As of this morning there were 15 spots left, but I would suggest you act soon. I believe the trip will fill. I hope we will see you onboard. We always have a great time.I would like to thank all of you for supporting the Buena Vista Audubon sponsored pelagic trips for a successful 2022 season. We had some great birds, such as a Wedge-tailed Shearwater, Cook’s Petrel, Guadalupe Murrelet, Townsend’s Storm Petrels, among others. Some crazy misses,and what is with our stealth Manx Shearwater all summer?Best of all was sharing this amazing pelagic wilderness, with you.We will be working to put together the 2023 season schedule shortly and hope to have that approved by all parties and up on the www.sandiegopelagics.com website by no later than the end of January 2023. Any suggestions or requests should be sent to the above website. We value your input. Thanks again and good birding,Dave PoveyDulzura
