From: Jeff Bray <jbray4913...> [OrangeCountyBirding] <OrangeCountyBirding-noreply...> Subject: Re: [OrangeCountyBirding] Nazca(?) Booby in Newport Harbor
So, some more info on the Nazca Booby that was seen on the Thunderbird
fishing vessel in Newport Harbor on Saturday evening...
The captain (Jeff) commented this morning in response to Tom
Ford-Hunchinson's comment on his Instagram post.
Basically, the captain said the bird left the boat as they were passing
Dana Point. It was reported to be projectile pooping off the side of the
boat a lot, so apparently it's sick in some way...
Would be worth keeping an eye out along the southern county beaches.
Screenshot of the response here:
