For our next Carpinteria Birdwatchers meeting, special guest Linus Blomqvist will tell us about a project he’s recently been involved in, monitoring the movement of seabirds (mostly) from the remote and hard-to-reach Point Conception, the prominent headland that divides the waters of Southern California from the coastline to the north.
Update: In part 2 of our meeting, Hugh Ranson will talk about the amazing fall birding that’s been happening lately at Scorpion Harbor on Santa Cruz Island.
The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 20, 2022. See you there via Zoom or YouTube livestream.

I very eager to see this meeting but I have an engagement tonight. Will it be filmed or videoed so it can be seen later?
Yes, once the meeting starts the ‘[YouTube livestream to come]’ section on this page will be replaced with the embedded YouTube video of the meeting. It will be available in the future on this page, as well as on the meetings page here: https://carpbirdwatchers.org/meetings/.
Checkout the geese at T Time. Think they might be the Greater White-fronted Goose? Counted 12 at 2 pm. Very little fear of golfers.
Yeah, Greater White-fronted Geese. I only saw 11, but I didn’t hang around; there could have been another one that I missed nearby.
