At 6:22 pm on July 23-2022, Tasli Shaw located a Nazca Booby off Victoria while driving a whale viewing vessel for Sea Ecoadventures. The bird appears to be the very same bird photographed in Seattle, WA on July 20th as a result of the unique quill considering that it is a subadult. Tasli enjoyed the Nazca Booby circling around and also remaining on the water at the south end of Test Island for 8 mins prior to she saw it fly SE at a quick speed. She followed it as it flew SE for 5 minutes up until it ran out view. She was able to acquire video clip paperwork and also pictures of the bird.
