Northern Fulmar from shore at San Onofre coast

Mark Holmgren
 

I birded near Santa Ynez, at Nojoqui County Park, and along the Gaviota Coast.  There I wanted to see the Red-necked Grebe spotted by Nick L. 2 days ago.  I did not see that bird, but I had 4 or 5 Horned Grebes and 2 Brant.  The surprise was a light morph Northern Fulmar flying close to shore headed west.  No pic obtained for the Fulmar.  Checklist for that coastal site and a map showing my location is here:
