The annual Los Angeles Audubon Scrub Jay Trip to Santa Cruz Island is the best way to see the endemic Island Scrub Jay. In 2008 en route to and from the islands we counted 245 Xantus's Murrelets, 318 Cassin's Auklets, 60 Pigeon Guillemots, more than 100 Surf Scoters and 3 species of shearwaters.
We will land at Prisonerís Cove where the endemic Island Scrub-Jay is easily seen. Then, we will cruise out to sea for pelagic birding, returning by Anacapa Island. Birds seen on prior trips: Northern Fulmar; Sooty and Pink-footed shearwaters; rocky shorebirds; South Polar Skua; Pomarine and Parasitic jeagers; Sabineís Gull; Pigeon Guillemot; Xantus Murrelet. Uncommon birds seen on prior trips: Flesh-footed Shearwater; American Oystercatcher; and Tufted Puffin. A Brown Booby has been seen on Anacapa Island. A box lunch and breakfast can be ordered at the dockside deli. More info
