Salt Spray Damages Boats

Yesterday was lackluster at best.  The weather was mostly abysmal, which made standing out on deck very unpleasant for most of the day.  That being said, I managed to see a few goodies that weren't new to me, but still worth looking at.  The boat sort of broke a little bit and made us super late getting back home.  We landed at about 10:30 PM and I was mostly blacked out brain dead at that point.  I have spent the morning recuperating at the house of the uncle of ASearcy.  It is lovely here, and I am forever indebted to the Searcy family for their kind hospitality.

Just to warn you, I'll probably be using these pelagic shots for a few days, so that I don't have to go birding or photographing.

This bird saved the day, sort of.  Red-billed Tropicbird, Santa Barbara County.

Leach's Storm-petrel.  There were gobs of these all day.  It was fun seing all the variation in tail patterns.
