Mitchís Pelagic Schedule 2001
Here is my schedule for 2001, a seabird oddysey.
My "eyes-for-hire" [ will bird for boat ride :) ]
will be at your service working in hyperdrive, as well
as running my bird location and identification software (hardwired at birdth) on the following dates this year.
The four Condor Cruises from Santa Barbara to the
Arguello Canyon area are 24-hour deepwater trips
searching for Pterodromas, Albatross, and
mega-rarities. Iíve seen it all at Arguello!!!
The six L.A. Audubon Society trips are day
trips with various ports and destinations.
Bernardo Alps will be co-leading ALL the condor trips,
and most/all LAAS trips. To sign up for these trips, or to
find out costs, etc., please contact the sponsors.
Donít shoot me, Iím just a leader, not the organizer!
Tell Ďem Mitch sent you! :)

Last year on nine trips I led, I found/saw/directed
the boat to all 32 species of SoCal "pelagics" normally
possible. This included both Albatrosses, six species
of Shearwaters, five sps. of Storm-Petrels, seven sps.
of Alcids, a "Skua Slam", a Booby, two Tropicbirds
and three Pterodromas (individuals, not species).
Soon we hope to have a graph up for you to see exactly
how many, what dates .... but the books are good
guides of when things are here most of the time.
Not all seabirds have seen a copy, however!
These 2001 dates and destinations have been selected
to do the same (see it all possible expected
SoCal pelagic species) this year, as well as maximizing the most
important factor: mega-rarity potential.
....would love to see you asea!
Your pelagic fanatic,
