Craveri's Murrelet with Pink-footed Shearwaters

Field Trip: Pelagic

Sat, Jun 24, 2023

Leader: Jon Feenstra

We are excited to announce another LAB pelagic trip! This is a 5-hour trip; a bit longer than our previous few pelagics, and giving us the opportunity to explore more areas and find more birds.

We depart in the early morning from King Harbor in Redondo Beach and we will return around noon.

We will explore the areas around Redondo Canyon, an underwater canyon that tends to have upwellings of food that attract birds. We will be on the lookout for shearwaters, gulls, terns, alcids, phalaropes, jaegers, and storm-petrels.

The trip will cost $85 per person, which includes a gratuity for the boat crew. Note that we will be on a 65-foot boat on the open ocean, and that there is a bit of a walk from the parking area to the boat. After making a reservation below, you will receive a confirmation and you will be emailed the meeting location.

Currently signup is limited to LAB members, who will receive an email with instructions for how to sign up.
