Subject: [MBBIRDS] 12 Hour Monterey Seabirds Pelagic Trip Available Sunday 8/30/20
Hello Everyone --



In case you would like to get away from the recent fires in our area, there
is a twelve hour pelagic trip going out this Sunday morning from the
Monterey Bay Whale Watch dock. The boat is operated by Monterey Seabirds,
and it has spaces available.



It should give us a chance to get out to an area that is visited only a few
times each year. A number of species have been found far offshore
including California's first Hawaiian Petrel, and it is prime time for
Arctic Terns and Long-tailed Jaegers. Scripp's and Craveri's Murrelets,
and Laysan Albatross have been found as well as many other rarely seen
birds. The excitement for me is the fact that almost any rare seabird or
marine mammal might be found in this rarely visited environment.



Please call (831) 375-4658 for reservations. Thanks very much!
