Pelagic in Lima January
  Date: January 26, 2004
 
Wav

Saturday´s pelagic gave a normal Summer result with numerous Galápagos birds, such as Swallow-tailed Gull, Blue-footed Booby, Waved Albatros and White-vented and Wedge-rumped Storm-Petrel. Also one Red-billed Tropicbird, lots of Black Storm-Petrels and Ringed Storm Petrel, several White-chinned Petrels. Pink-footed Sheerwater 5, Sooty Shearwater 5 (which is unusually low) and about 10 Peruvian Terns during the day. Other species included White-cheeked Pintail (close to Isla San Lorenzo and our first record on the pelagics), Humboldt Penguin 4, Wilson´s Storm-Petrel (few), Peruvian Booby, Peruvian Pelican, Red.legged Cormorant 10, Guanay Cormorant 6, Neotropic Cormorant, Inca Tern, Sandwich Tern, Band-tailed, Kelp, Franklin´s and Gray Gull.

Pictures of Waved Albatros, White-chinned Petrel, Black Storm-Petrel, Wedge-rumped Storm-Petrel, White-vented Storm-Petrel and Ringed Storm-Petrel can be found on www.birding-peru.com under pics (best shots and ID).

A group of three whales were seen. The dorsal fin indicated Sei whale. But they behaved differently to the sei we saw in December (more arches and not showing the back at length) and had a very bluish-gray coloration. Still think they were too large for Bryde´s though. Finally, impressive numbers of? South American Sea Lion at isles Palomino.

 

Next pelagic is on Sunday February 1.
