Dave Povey can't stay away from the ocean. If he is not fishing, he is birding. There are not many San Diego pelagic birds that Dave has not seen repeatedly because he has been at this for nearly 40 years. Dave has done the pelagic portions of the Audubon Christmas Bird Count for both the Oceanside count and the San Diego count for 33 years. That's 66 Christmas counts! Add a trip or two every week in his 21 foot Parker fishing boat, and Dave has years at sea. He is the only known human to have seen a Cory's Shearwater in San Diego County.
