Whale Watch Black Tern, 25 August
This morning I took the three hour whale watch boat out of Mission Bay. Very quiet overall, not quite reaching the Nine Mile Bank. The best bird was a single BLACK TERN perhaps 5 miles west of Mission Bay. An immature SABINE’S GULL was further out on a kelp patty with a single COMMON TERN. I only saw three BLACK STORM-PETRELS and perhaps 50 BLACK-VENTED SHEARWATERS.
