After a very successful beach outing Friday, some other interesting birds have shown up. A scaled down Patagonia Picnic Table Effect perhaps. The whale carcass 3 miles down is looking like a strong candidate for a juvenile Sperm Whale. Hoping to find either of the Jaegers spotted by Dominic and Thomas earlier today. Conditions way different than Friday, with strong winds, rough seas, high tide, and suboptimal seeing conditions. Way more birds on this portion of beach though.
