Blue-footed Booby here, Blue-footed Bo0by there, all across the California coast there are reports of the birds. According to eBird,
As many as seven birds are at the Playa del Rey–Breakwater, and at least one bird has made it as far north as the Pt. Reyes Lighthouse. Birders on the Pacific Coast should be on high alert for this species. Even more remarkable is the number of birds being seen at inland lakes. From southeast Arizona to Los Angeles and Riverside Counties, birders have turned up wayward Blue-footed Boobies.
No one has come up with an explanation, but we think these birds may have heard that it is pilot season in Los Angeles. Real Boobies of Galapagos anyone? We’d greenlight it.
