La Jolla Cove, Jan 7, afternoon:

6:08 pm

Posting this so Phil Unitt will see it sooner rather than later.

Went back to the Cove 3:30-sunset, to see if there was anything.
There was NOTHING flying over the ocean; made this morning’s pitiful numbers look wonderful by comparison.
The cliffs were full of gulls, pelicans and cormorants trying to keep out of the wind.
Maybe tomorrow morning will have something.

Phil: found a very freshly dead Cassin’s auklet on the sidewalk.
I’d say a broken neck.
Otherwise in beautiful condition.
Brought it home, just now put it in the freezer.
Let me know if you want it for the collection and we can arrange a time for me to bring it in.
Or if you want me to take it out of the freezer.
