A cruise-ship pelagic with ca. 20 birders aboard the "Coral Princess" between Los Angeles and Vancouver was between southern Monterey and central Mendocino Counties on 3 May. Highlights included: HAWAIIAN PETREL: total of 5, with excellent views and photos (1 San Mateo, 2 San Francisco, 2 Mendocino) MURPHY'S PETREL: total of at least 7, ditto views/photos (1 Monterey, 2 San Francisco, 1 Marin, 3 Mendocino) LAYSAN ALBATROSS: total of 2 (San Mateo, Mendocino) But zero Cook's Petrels, following two April cruises with moderate numbers in virtually every county traversed during daylight. Also, a flock of 7 Arctic Terns in Monterey and still good numbers for spring of both Fork-tailed and Leach's Storm-Petrels along most of route. Lost a few hours of the day to dense fog, mostly in AM. Paul Lehman, San Diego
