Gearhart: At about 13:30 I was at C. and Cottage in Gearhart and a bright
white booby with a large bright orange-yellow bill and black wedge-shaped
tail and black border to the white wings passed in straight-line flight
north over me about 1000 meters up in good light. It continued north until
I lost it. I think it was either Masked or Nazca Booby, but leaning Nazca
because of bill color impression...

I will share more details/thoughts later.
