We had an absolutely insane pelagic for storm petrels yesterday out of Half Moon Bay. Thousands of Black Storm-Petrels sprinkled with Ashy and Wilson's. On Saturday we have a longer 10 hour trip out of Monterey and we shall head NW towards the area where we saw these storm petrels. I am hoping the birds extend south, and that we will be able to get to find some off Santa Cruz. Water temperatures and chlorophyll levels (ocean productivity) looks similar offshore from Santa Cruz to where the storm-petrels were, so hopefully we will find birds there too.
