Media notes

Two of four Craveri's Murrelets in LA County waters approx. 26 km E of the SE tip of Catalina Island (33.27583, -118.02567).

Observation details

4 in first group (33.27583, -118.02567), 2 in second group (33.33800, -118.00633). First four fairly cooperative and black underwings were visible when they raised their wings, and then when they flew. Many photos were taken. The next two were less cooperative and I don't know if diagnostic photos were taken. They had the cocked tails of Craveri's and that brownish cast.
