For anyone interested, I've posted some photos and a trip list from a pelagic several CT birders did off the West Coast recently. In addition to the regular trips run by Debi Shearwater, we took a trip out of Half Moon Bay, near San Francisco run by Alvaro Jaramillo. I highly recommend these trips as an addition, or an alternative to the Monterey Bay trips, which were unimpressive (by CA standards) during our visit. Alvaro runs a fun and informative trip and it seems most of the better birds were seen out of Half Moon Bay this fall, including rarities that consisted of at least two Great Shearwaters and a Manx Shearwater - being from the East, two species not likely to get our adrenalin going!
He plans to run some back to back trips in the future, primarily for East coast birders that make the trek out west and want to maximize their pelagic birding.
