What is presumably the same light-morph adult RED-FOOTED BOOBY seen two days in a row at La Jolla almost two weeks ago was seen again yesterday, the 29th, by Jim Pea during a half-day fishing trip just inside U.S. waters off Imperial Beach. The bird was last seen heading somewhat toward Point Loma. In other booby news, Dean T. saw a good total of 17 BROWN BOOBIES today, the 30th, at La Jolla (including a single flock of 13 birds), as well as the 3 continuing BLACK OYSTERCATCHERS. Also today, a one-year-old, sporadic REDDISH EGRET was present again at the J Street/Marina Way mudflats in Chula Vista. Twenty-five Am. White Pelicans at Sweetwater Reservoir, where also lots of young chick Western Grebes riding around on the parents' backs. --Paul Lehman, San Diego
