There are Boobies everywhere.
A full on invasion.
Well, maybe not everywhere, but certainly more than usual, which is almost never. So far they have all been juvenile Blue-footed Boobies. It took me two days and about five hours, but I finally got a quick glance at one this afternoon. My eyes were practically bleeding after looking at thousands of pelicans, cormorants, gulls, shearwaters, and terns trying to turn one of them into a Booby.
No Booby pics, but the marine mammals were also out in good force. Yesterday had a half a dozen or more humpback whales including a mother in calf near shore. I also saw a couple of sea otters. Today had only 1-2 humpbacks but over a dozen sea otters.
A few poor images of the marine mammals below.
No go out to the coast and look for boobies.
Here is a link to some actual good Booby images from Santa Cruz. Link goes to a single photo, but poke around Alex's library for a few more.
