disturbance - 7:59-8:03 eagle (Sm) Most near shore PGs flew into kelp, but returned after a few minutes. There were three deliveries during this time.

disturbance - 8:36-8:37 other (N) Two ravens perched at burrow N1. They were peering into the burrow and I (Dave) half-expected them to pull out a chick. Nothing happened, and they flew off.

disturbance - 8:37 other (N) Two ravens visited C3 while ledge sitters were coming and going. The Ravens didn't stay and birds left ledge but settled back in on water.

disturbance - 8:39 other (Sm) Two ravens (the same from the first 2 "other" disturbances?) perched near S3 burrow entrance; PGs in the area (15-20) flew in a continuing circle from ocean to burrow, not landing, but quite a flurry of flying reminiscent of burrow shopping behavior. Two PGs landed briefly at S3 burrow entrance following Raven disturbance then participated in the flurry. Increased high pitched vocalizations from PGs!
