- Comments: "After seeing one earlier in the day close to the Ventura Harbor I had my camera ready in case we had another encounter. This bird was seen just north of the east end of Santa Cruz Island. The same description applies but this time I got a few photos.

Small gray bird with dark, apparently black feathering mainly along the leading edge of the upper wing highlighting a light gray carpal bar. Flew with relatively direct flight with stiff wings not exceeding much beyond the plain of the body. Rare sighting for the SB Channel."
