This trip was part of the excursion day during the American Ornithologists¿ Union meeting at the University of California, Santa Barbara, 23¿27 August. Collins was the trip leader and showed Island Scrub-Jays to all the participants. Compton was the only seabird leader for the crossing, which took place on the Truth. In addition to Sykes and Sheppard, there were two or three other participants who were decent seabirders, but I never got their names.
Are you submitting a complete checklist of the birds you were able to identify?
