Weathered Out

The long-awaited pelagic trip out of Santa Barbara yesterday was cancelled. This trip is known as a Pterodroma Trawl, a boat capable of netting dozens of birders a pantheon of petrels. It certainly would have been a trip worth getting one's panties in a twist. Alas...it was weathered out. Not that I was planning on going or anything.

All I'm saying is that I feel your pain birders. I too have felt the sting of a canceled boat far too many times. I know what you're going through.

Luckily, the boat I am scheduled to go out on doesn't head out for another three weeks. I'm looking forward to it...I NEED SEABIRDS.

That is all.
