Other birds from the boat trip include this adult Heerman's Gull which was a target bird for me. I don't know how I missed this species on previous trips. I was so excited to see the first one that I took a photo of it waaaaaaay out in the harbor just so that I had something on record. Little did I know that we would see hundreds of them during our trip. This is the only gull that has gray body to go along with the wings.

Another bird that we saw from the boat was Black-vented Shearwater. Same deal as the gull - we saw one and ran around the boat deck to get a look at it and then saw about 200 more after that. Unfortunately, these birds are difficult to photograph in evening light. This is the best that I could muster.
