  1. cruise pelagic 3 May: 5 Hawaiians, 7 Murphy's, 2 Laysans LINK
    DATE: May 4, 2017 @ 5:08am, 6 month(s) ago
    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.
