    OK, I've got a........
    1. Murrelet
    2. Marbled Murrelet
    3. Baby Condor
    4. "Irving"
    5. Vested Sea Cock
    6. Storm Petrel
    7. Fowl Pole
    8. Oclet
    9. Gay Bird

    and many others that were Extremely Silly. :smash:

    I was going to write it up in an article with a gift for guessing it right. I was afraid I'd get hundreds or right answers. Someone must know what this bird IS. ?????
    Is it one of the 9 above ????? :beerbang: Now that I can see where this is going.........I will offer this......to the guy that can guess the right name, and not Irving....Dr. Morris, and prove it with website ID, I'll mail you and 5 more after you that agree the #1 hottest 7Strand Tuna Clone Feather in "Carrot Top" that will beat anyone on your trolling team every single time.

    Could it be a Craveris Murrelet???

    http://identify.whatbird.com/obj/256/_/Craveris_Murrelet.aspx

    General
    Craveri's Murrelet: Small, plump seabird (alcid) with black upperparts that extend as a bar onto side of upper breast, distinct white crescents above and below eyes, white underparts, and dark gray underwing linings. Sexes are similar. Reminiscent of a small, flying penguin.
    Range and Habitat
    Craveri's Murrelet: A threatened species; breeds on islands in the Gulf of California and off Baja California north to San Benito Islands. After breeding, wanders to the southern California coast, occasionally farther north. Rocky cliffs and offshore waters are the preferred habitat for this murrelet.
    Voice Text
    Call is insectlike chattering., Makes harsh trills when agitated.

    Yeah, anyone can use the internet. I gotta say though, I was wrong. He says they breed on the islands...
    Gay Birds don't breed...
    Do they?
    No Tuna Clone for me..

    On a trip we had to benitos one year, in the pre-dawn, we had hundreds of those things crashing into the deck lights and sides of the Qualifier 105.
    They were littering the deck so bad (and breaking their occaisional necks), they had to shut off the lights.
    After the sun came up we had the most awesome Yellowtail bite I've ever been involved with! Non-stop catching on anything you wanted to throw until noon. Up to 35# ... and we left them biting.

    I think that John The Hook is dead nuts right.
    Who agrees?
    If not, who does not agree and what's your argument and replacement.
    Leoman LTBOLTMAN......YOU AGREE, RIGHT ?
    MATT SMUDGE from OB, waazup ? the least auklet is listed as a "related bird" to the craveris murrelet. Sticking with your guns on the Least Auklet ?

    Hard one to call Steve without seeing the wing. At first I was inclined to call it a Craveri's. However, it does not have the black collar and white chin, throat of a Craveri's.

    Could be a hybrid of a Cravei's and an Ancient Murrelet. The chin and throat are black like the Ancient but lacks the yellowish bill. The under wing of the Ancient is white while the Craveri's is gray. Also the Carveri's is 8" long while the Ancient is 10".
