Tufted Puffin off La Jolla
The San Diego Bird Festival pelagic trip on Friday had an adult tufted puffin swimming around the boat only 9.7 nautical miles west of southern la Jolla. The wings were likely in molt and it is doubtful the bird can fly so it can't get too far. We will obviously try again for the bird on the Saturday and Sunday boats but the weather on Saturday is looking pretty iffy.
