Sooty Shearwater #66 is the last of 14 birds marked in San Luis Bay in early September to leave the California Current System. Its departure coincided with the arrival of the second, significant north Pacific atmospheric low pressure front to brush California this boreal fall -- that means it's spring in the Southern Hemisphere and time to leave. Follow the wind down south and take a trip on route 66. ARGOS locations from the Kiwisat 202 transmitter (Sirtrack, Ltd.) are uplinked every other day.
