  1. revised (upward) cruise-ship totals: 5 Short-tld Albatrosses, 187 Mottled Petrels, 8 Cook's, 45 Laysans LINK
    DATE: Dec 2, 2017 @ 8:29am, 9 day(s) ago
    The numbers I posted yesterday (01 Dec) for the "Star Princess"
    
    cruise-ship transect off OR (and earlier CA) were low, for the entire
    
    group; and careful, constantly-scoping birders added a lot more
    
    individuals for some species. So the "final" totals for the day for the
    
    more interesting species were:
    
    Short-tailed Albatross: 5  (all first-year and one probable
    
    second-year), including 3 together
    
    Laysan Albatross:  44  (all-time high from any birding boat Perhaps
    
    higher in past on one or two NOAA cruises)
    
    Mottled Petrel:  187  (crazy numbers once the first bird was seen off
    
    Newport)
    
    Cook's Petrel:  8  (as far north as off Tillamook)
    
    Buller's Shearwater:  3
    
    Views of a bunch of the albatrosses and many Mottleds were spectacular,
    
    and undoubtedly many full-frame photos will be posted with the
    
    appropriate eBird reports in a couple days or so.
    
    Alas, I am told that the return sailing southbound on the STAR PRINCESS
    
    two weeks from now from Vancouver to Los Angeles is FULL.
