La Jolla Cove, Sep 10: trash birds plus blue-footed booby

Went to the Cove from 6:30-9:00, hoping to see Sabine’s gull. Did not see any.
The usual 2000-2500 black-vented shearwaters. From what I see from the paucity of black-vents from offshore reports, the Cove and La Jolla Canyon are where they are concentrated this summer.
No storm-petrels.
About 100 red-necked phalaropes.
2 brown boobies.
At 7:35, a late second-cycle or almost adult blue-footed booby flew determinedly north.
By the time you see this post, it will be in L.A. waters.
