Hello all,

It’s been excellent day with plenty of things to look at including storm petrels, shearwaters, and albatrosses including at least 20 black-footed and the highlight of the day: a laysan albatross! Lots of people added this bird to their life list.

We spent quite a bit of time on the Cortez Bank with albatrossess next to the boat. And then had a surprise visit from an immature Nazca booby too. Great weather again with a little breeze this afternoon. Headed home tonight after a very successful trip!
