23 Species at Monterey Bay, CA

Black-footed Albatross
the albatross landed briefly at the stern of the boat, drawn by the seagulls eating the stale popcorn. Unfortunately, we were pretty sick when it landed, but we did get a nice close look at it.
Sooty Shearwater
saw thousands of them circling over the water
Wandering Tattler
