some much smaller than COMU, in separate but following-near flock behind COMU , (but not paired off with single COMU s), half size of, and prob murres shouldn’t have such tiny babies anymore and if so they would be singly with a parent : not dark, so prob marbled murrelets;

difficult making out because
sky mostly gray with fog obscuring ocean out beyond 100-yd, sometimes sprinkling/raining, kept switching off wearing rain jacket or not : sometimes too hot with it on when sky lightened some with possibility of sun : sometimes visibility better, but mostly it is not a midmorning good for ocean watching

booby sp.

still hopeful I might be lucky enough to refind Colby’s booby of yesterday, looking for it ... this beach just north of his booby’s rocks ;
twice saw a flash of something sitting on water could be size of with white on head and some white under/side, just wishful thinking asking - the ocean? - “Please let this be the booby and let me find it and see it better!” — didn’t happen.
