The northwest-bound (San Francisco to se. Alaska) "Grand Princess" was well off Humboldt and Del Norte Counties from 6-10 AM on 09 May, before continuing on into Oregon waters. Highlights were a total of 25 MURPHY'S PETRELS (18 Humboldt, 7 Del Norte), as well as an Arctic Tern and a group of 3 Greater Scaup heading north some 107 km west of Trinidad, HUM. As we departed San Francisco on 08 May, we had a FORK-TAILED STORM-PETREL only 1 mile outside the Golden Gate Bridge, and still well "inside" Land's End/Cliff House/Sutro. No surprise given the widespread incursion off central CA since April. --Paul Lehman, San Diego
