An apparent Nazca Booby was photographed sitting on the Thunderbird sportfishing boat earlier this evening (11/18) while it was docked in Newport Harbor. Unfortunately the boat left at 9pm per its typical schedule, and one way or another the bird could not be located anywhere on the docks in this vicinity at about 9:15 tonight, although this was of course in darkness. It would probably be good to search for the bird in the morning in case it is still somewhere in the harbor, for those interested.
The Thunderbird docks in this vicinity, though of course it would be beneficial to search all over as the bird could have landed on any other boat (assuming it stayed in the harbor).
