La Jolla Sea Watch and Rocky Shores
Google Maps: Point La Jolla, GPS: 32.85071, -117.27374
Leaders: Stan Walens and Peter Thomas
La Jolla Cove is a scenic spot where the Pacific Ocean meets a rocky coastline. We will start by scanning the offshore out to the coastal kelp beds for pelagic species, including loons, shearwaters, and auklets. Rocky shore species that we might see include Brown Pelican, all three local Cormorants, winter gulls, Black Turnstones, and possibly Wandering Tattlers. Can be cool and windy (but that could bring the birds closer to the shore). BRING A SCOPE IF YOU HAVE ONE. Restrooms are available. Capped at 12 participants.
On-line registration is required. Caps on the number of participants on each outing are specified. COVID-19 Requirements: You must be more than 2 weeks beyond your second vaccination (Pfizer/Moderna) or the single dose (Johnson and Johnson) at the time of the trip. A mask is not mandatory as of now, but any guidelines in place at the time of the outing will be followed.
