    Butch and all,
    
    Parakeet Auklet spotted today (7-24) around noon from Lands End overlook. Flew in, swam and rolled with and dunked under the swells, then flew off about 15 minutes later.

    Yes, car burglaries are a HUGE problem at the parking area at Land's End, but also true anywhere in San Francisco and surrounding areas.

    I recall there were some cars burglarized while parked at that lot during the day. Is that still a risk

    I received an email from someone asking where Hermit Rock was. It seems there have been very few posts to calbirds recently on this bird, so I probably should have included more info. For more information, try birding.aba.org and check the San Francisco listserv. Lots of details there.
    
    Hermit Rock is at Lands End in Golden Gate NRA, where this rarity has been present for some time.

    Here's what I wrote last year on the subject... Hermit Rock is here: https://goo.gl/maps/Po383mhrc2L2
    Walking directions from the parking lot to the observation point: https://goo.gl/maps/HwWHw6JiLyR2
    And here's a slightly annotated screenshot that should capture all the relevant details (though some squinting might be needed)

    Yesterday Brian Fitch found a Parakeet Auklet at Land's End, presumably the same bird that was here last July. It was seen several times throughout the morning. If it follows last year's pattern, it should be here for a number of days, if not weeks. GPS Location - 37.7880568,-122.5059301

  19. AUG 4 & AUG 6 PELAGIC TRIP REPORTS LINK
    DATE: Aug 7, 2017 @ 2:16pm, 1 year(s) ago
    Howdy, Birders,
    
    Shearwater Journeys’ trips departing from Monterey Bay, August 4th and Sausalito to the Farallon Islands, August 6th, encountered extraordinary numbers and variety of seabirds and marine mammals. And, yes, “it’s all about food”— my favorite saying. Monterey Bay is teaming with bait fish and some krill. The area surrounding the Farallon Islands, out to the edge of the Continental Shelf was floor to ceiling in krill. The marine life associated with the prey items was divided accordingly! Both trips enjoyed flat, calm seas with visibility up to 10 miles.
    
    Highlights of our August 4 Monterey Bay pelagic trip included: BLACK-FOOTED ALBATROSS (8, excellent views), SOOTY (30,000+) and, PINK-FOOTED SHEARWATERS (34), ASHY STORM-PETREL (2, distant views), RED-NECKED (121) and RED (19) PHALAROPES, LONG-TAILED JAEGER (1, distant view), SABINE’S GULL (including 2 early juveniles, sitting on the water, excellent views), COMMON MURRE (1,025, many dads with chicks), and RHINOCEROS AUKLETS (62, good views). All birds were in Monterey County.
    
    Marine mammals included: BLUE (2), FIN (1), HUMPBACK (12) WHALES; RISSO’S (30) and PACIFIC WHITE-SIDED (100) DOLPHINS, DALL’S PORPOISE ( 8, bow-riding on the head of a blue whale). Other highlights included: MAKO (1, excellent views) and BLUE (4, great views) SHARKS. We retrieved 6 mylar balloons, but could not pick up the floating refrigerator (future potential booby habitat!)
    
    Highlights of our August 6 Farallon Islands pelagic trip included: MASKED (thought to be a sub-adult, hundreds of images), BLUE-FOOTED (1 on Sugar Loaf), and BROWN (1 sitting next to the Blue-footed) BOOBIES , BLACK-FOOTED ALBATROSS (2); NORTHERN FULMAR (1), SOOTY (10) and PINK-FOOTED (24) SHEARWATERS; RED-NECKED PHALAROPE (2700), and TUFTED PUFFIN (25), CASSIN’S (7000) and RHINOCEROS (10) AUKLETS, COMMON MURRE (18,000). Most birds were in San Francisco County, including the Masked Booby. We looked for the Parakeet Auklet, but did not find it. The Masked Booby flew across our bow shortly after leaving that location. Our excellent captain chased the booby and we had a chance to see it plunge-diving. Hundreds of images were made. A Common Murre was very vocal about this booby’s presence!
    
    Marine mammals included: GRAY (2), BLUE (4) and HUMPBACK (44) WHALES, HARBOR PORPOISE. We stopped the boat and were surrounded by tail-slapping, head-slapping and breaching humpback whales for 360 degrees. The fish finder showed krill from top to bottom along the shelf break. The albatrosses, shearwaters and fulmar flew in while we were sitting around taking photographs. The rather tattered fulmar swam right up to the gunwales. It was a magical marine scene that few will ever encounter. The weather was so good that we headed up to the north islands of the Farallon Island group— something I’ve only done once before.

    Hi, this is the rock that the bird has been frequenting on and off for the last couple of weeks. It is East of the USS San Francisco memorial parking lot at Land's End. GPS location is 37.785730, -122.509624. Watch from the coastal trail...

     Hi folks, just a short note that the parakeet auklet is again at Hermit Rock today. It flew in at 8am, landed on the top of the rock and was immediately chased by black oystercatchers. Since then it has been been seen flying around the rock, mostly landing on the back side of the rock. Twice the bird also landed on the flat rock to the left of Hermit Rock.
    
    Still present at 9am

    Hi All,
    John and Mary Westlake from Berkeley asked me to post that they saw the parakeet Auklet in San Francisco today between 10 and 11 am.They said from "the usual place" so I'm assuming it was on Hermit Rock which is visible from the main overlook at Land's End.

    The Parakeet Auklet was seen for ten minutes on the back side of Hermit Rock at 8:15am, best viewed from farther east at the Land's End Labyrinth. It flew and wasn't yet relocated by 10am.
