La Jolla Sea Watch January 21
This morning starting around 7:00 I spent about three hours sea watching at La Jolla Cove. The wind brought large numbers of gulls (Western, California, Heerman’s, Ring-billed, Boneparte’s, and a single Glaucous-winged) a few Surf Scoters and loons. A light-phase Northern Fulmar flew by early, but the Black-vented Shearwaters didn’t come closer in until about 8:30, up to 500 were visible at one time. The wind is forecast to continue through the day, maybe the Skua or the Magnificent Frigate Bird seen north of us yesterday will show up this afternoon.
