11:04 am

A La Jolla seawatch much of the morning today, 11 Jan, in the wind by 12-15 birders produced an intermediate Leach’s-type Storm-Petrel (Leach’s/Townsend’s/Ainley’s) very soon after dawn (first spotted by Paul Mulholland), 2 Short-tailed Shearwaters that hung out and made repeated passes VERY close to shore, 2 Sooty Shearwaters, 2 Black-legged Kittiwakes, 10 Cassin’s Auklets, 6+ Red Phalaropes, and a Short-billed Gull. Photos of some will appear in upcoming eBird lists.
