Howdy, Seabirders,

Spaces are still available on Shearwater Journey's Friday, June 27th trip departing from Fishermans' Wharf in Monterey at 7 am, and returning about 3 pm. Several weeks ago, krill was being reported by offshore research vessels. (In addition to a few Murphy's Petrels off Point Arena). We usually don't have too many summer trips, but occasionally, we have turned up some very unusual seabirds — North America's first Bulwer's Petrel (Monterey) and Crested Auklet (Bodega Bay) stand out. Both seabirds were discovered on Shearwater Journeys' trips. Rare seabirds, or not, we should have a great showing of Black-footed Albatrosses, while the nesting Brandt's Cormorants on the Coast Guard Jetty should be very busy. 

Scheduled leaders include: Jennifer Green, who has been living in a yurt and riding horses across Mongolia, Don Doolittle who will be testing out his new Canon 300 mm lens, and Debra Shearwater. Guest, and friend of Debra & Don, Claudio Vidal will also be on board. Claudio and Debra met on a voyage to Antarctica, South Georgia, and The Falkland Islands in 2001. Claudio is the author of many books, best known among them being: Birds of Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego & Antarctic Peninsula and Birds of the Beagle Channel and Cape Horn. (both with Enrique Couve).
