Stan and all,
Hank Ingersoll and I looked for frigatebirds on the bay from Shelter Island and Fort Rosecrans late this morning (5 Sep) and found none.

Went to the Cove from 930 to 11. There was a nice stream of black-vented shearwaters going past. But they were circling around on the horizon and it was very hard to tell just how many there were. Somewhere between 800 and 1500 or more. Also 11 pink-footed shearwaters and one Buller's shearwater, my FOS, and one pome jaeger. No alcids, boobies or frigatebirds. No thresher sharks.
I see no reports from San Diego Harbor today. Did anyone go to look for the frigatebirds?
