Mostly focused this effort on a seawatch after quickly checking the flooded, sterile pond. Very little life in the pond and surrounding edge. Seawatch was productive. Strong SE winds producing nice numbers and diversity of pelagics.

    Comments: Getting a bit late for Sooty Shearwater but not too shocking given the conditions and context here. Nonetheless I was still surprised to see one which became my 4th Shearwater species of the seawatch which is exciting for late Sept. Seen toward the end of my seawatch and like all of the other shearwaters seen the Sooty was headed west to east. Completely dark Shearwater, both ventral and dorsal. Long, slender winged appearance with subtle hint of pale panels on underwings.
