Northern Gannet

Image

As far as anyone knows, the Northern Gannet that appeared on Southeast Farallon Island in 2012 is the first and ONLY one of its kind ever to appear in the Pacific. How he/she got here from the the North Atlantic is a mystery, but it seems he has settled in and will likely spend the rest of his life in this foreign ocean—alone. After four searches for the bird, I finally saw it yesterday with a boat load of delighted birders.
