  1. Farallon highlights LINK

    Hi birders,
    Over the last few days, the Point Blue crew experienced ideal weather ( overcast skies, limited visibility, and light winds) for sending migrants to Southeast Farallon Island. And oh my, how they came. In addition to the normal western birds, we found the following: Red-footed Booby-1 (1st record since 1975), Scripps's Murrelet-1, Least Flycatcher-2, Eastern Warbling Vireo-1, Red-eyed Vireo-1, Green-tailed Towhee-1, Bobolink-2, Ovenbird-1, Tennessee Warbler-4, Connecticut Warbler-1, Mourning Warbler-1, American Redstart-3, Magnolia Warbler-1, Blackburnian Warbler-1, Chestnut-sided Warbler-2, Blackpoll Warbler-1, and Canada Warbler-1 (our 4th this fall).
    Southeast Farallon Island, a part of the Farallon National Wildlife Refuge, is off limits to the public, but the juvenile Red-footed Booby, which was seen yesterday and today, may be visible on a whale watching boat to the island. Although there have been 3 Brown Boobies on Sugarloaf Islet lately, we have yet to see the Red-footed Booby land there. Yesterday afternoon it landed briefly on Saddle Rock before the Western Gulls chased it off. It then flew around the island with the pelicans for a couple hours before sunset. Today we saw it briefly around 2:15 PM. The booby could be roosting somewhere else on the island that we are unaware of.
