Tufted Puffin flight composite

Did a pelagic after a long time. This was out of Bodega Bay. Had a bit of a rough time but I made the mistake of not eating anything during the trip. Conditions actually were normal for this area, where its more windy and more like the Pacific Northwest rather than Central California. But you have to go where the birds are and a Tufted Puffin in flight is worth the effort. This was in conjunction with Al Jaramillo's Seabird Identification class, which I would highly recommend. August 2013.
