Ashy Storm-Petrel

There may have been more. Various flocks, sitting on water and then flying off to re-sit. Amazingly, the flocks were uniform and no white rumped birds or larger birds present. So all were Ashy! That is unusual as often the flocks have a few other species mixed in.

2
Pomarine Jaeger

First cycle and second cycle?

1
Guadalupe Murrelet

Others have better photos than mine. White goes above eye, connects to white eyelid. Based on Jehl’s score, a “1” so not the whitest faced type, but still whiter faced than birds considered intermediates (given a “2”, have no white above eye, no connection to white top eye crescent).

Black-footed Albatross

Northern Fulmar
Very high numbers for mid-summer. Most (if not all) appeared to be second-year birds molting outer primaries.

Sooty Shearwater

Fork-tailed Storm-Petrel
Amazing mid-summer numbers. We encountered numerous rafts. Most appeared to be molting outer primaries, suggesting 2nd year birds. Perhaps “driven” south by food shortages up north?
