Sooty Shearwater Ardenna grisea

Description

Significant rarity for Imperial County, California, found floating at the west end of Sunbeam Lake in Seeley by Jay Keller and BJ Stacey on 7/29/17. A total of nine photos are included here that show the key features to separate this species from the far less likely Short-tailed Shearwater and Christmas Island Shearwater, including photos of the bill length with a ruler, underwing coloration and other features, as well as a location photo.

The bird was first observed floating upside down at the west terminus of Sunbeam Lake, Seeley, CA, when it was noted that the bird's coloration, tail length and beak structure/size eliminated more likely candidates of birds such as cormorants. Upon retrieval from the water, it became quite clear that this specimen represented a tubenose of the genus Ardenna, and careful observation and measurements ruled out other possibilities vs. Ardenna grisea, aka "Sooty Shearwater" including Ardenna tenuirostris aka "Short-tailed Shearwater" and Puffinus nativitatis aka "Christmas Island Shearwater". Note most importantly photo "G" which shows the bill length of this bird to be 45mm from tip of the premaxillary nail to proximal end of the culminicorn and 51mm from nail to the promximal terminus of the gape, which are measurements far exceeding the maximum for Short-tailed Shearwater per Pyle 2008. The underwing pattern (photo "B") eliminates Christmas Island Shearwater.

In can be reasonably postulated that this bird was carried northward from the Gulf of California following significant monsoonal flows.

Per Guy McCaskie, Ken Kurland was able to acquire the specimen for deposit into the San Diego Natural History Museum on 7/30/17.

I have enough to keep me busy for many weeks at least with scanning, etc. (thanks Chuck….I think!). These will all be of records I had not posted to iNat previously. Sorry for the marginal/poor quality of most of these but they are all I have.

This is what I have been calling Erastria decrepitaria since my first one here in late September. @gcwarbler and I have discussed these at some length since they are similar to:
Erastria cruentaria. I have this species commonly, and so far without fail they keep their wings closed at 45 to 60 degrees, so it is difficult to get a shot of the upperwing. This morning I got a little better shot of the upperwing. This species is quite common at my sheet and I have 1 to 3 individuals almost each evening.
