I spent a total of about three hours at Coal Oil Point this morning. As I mentioned in an earlier email, the wind was pretty strong and from the west, and visibility was good until about 10am when the heat shimmer got in the way. I had three Black-legged Kittiwakes, two jaegers, two Common Murres, about 60 loons in total (mostly Red-throated), four Black-vented Shearwaters, and - perhaps my favorite part - over 80 Forster's Terns. The biggest flock had 43 individuals. I was careful to not double count, so I think the number is pretty accurate. Checklist: https://ebird.org/checklist/S80964078.
Even more notably for the location, I saw an immature Golden Eagle from the Storke apartment complex just north of Isla Vista. I included a detailed description in my checklist <https://ebird.org/checklist/S80972634> and I think it suffices as evidence for the ID. According to Lehman's Birds of Santa Barbara, this is a highly unusual sighting.
