Observation details

juv briefly following boat ~8 nmi NW of Pt. Pinos, and then briefly returning 5 minutes later for another pass, caused much excitement and confusion. It was plumage with which most of us were completely unfamiliar, and issues of kittiwake & Sabine's Gull were raised. Fortunately good photos were obtained by several, this is my only shot.
