Observation details

major densities in middle of Monterey Bay west of mouth of Soquel Canyon, presumably over krill as some Humpbacks were feeding here. The numbers likely suggest a breeding failure on the Farallones. All birds photo'd were in heavy wing molt, suggestive of a post-breeding-attempt molt (an example below)
