Bodega Bay – 10-15-11

Today was a good day with two large flocks of storm-petrels, a dozen South Polar Skuas, a flock of 77 Sabine’s Gulls, a couple of nice flocks of shearwaters, and highlighted by three Flesh-footed Shearwaters.

The weather was excellent with light winds and only 4 foot swells.

At one point we were surrounded by a dozen Humpback Whales.  No new year birds, though.  Hopefully tomorrow.
