An interesting post from CalBirds:

Seabirds on the move in Humboldt Current and Central America.

Hi folks

I thought I would fill you in on what is happening to the south of us.
Although the El Niño is still predicted and not official, the water off the
Galapagos, Ecuador, N and C Peru is quite a bit warmer than usual. Here is a
link to a map of current Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies in this region

http://www.surf-forecast.com/breaks/Mancora/seatemp

This is causing a massive shift in food availability for seabirds there. On
my facebook page I have posted photos from my friend Ronny Peredo of the
massive die off mainly of Peruvian Booby, and Guanay Cormorants being
experienced in northernmost Chile. Link to that is here
https://www.facebook.com/alvarosadventures

The die off has been intense in the last two weeks of June, includes mostly
juvenile birds. There is evidence that some birds are moving south from Peru
as dead birds in Arica include Blue-footed Boobies, a species considered a
vagrant this far south. But there are plenty of birds moving north as well.
It is still a way’s south of us, but these records should at least have us
looking carefully not only on pelagics but at coastal seabird congregations.
These are among the records I have heard of second hand, so they require
verification.

Peruvian Booby – on Galapagos, as well as Panama! Their typical range is to
southernmost Ecuador.

Inca Tern – recent sightings off Costa Rica! First for that country as I
gather, also sightings in Panama.

Grey Gull – sightings in Panama

Coastal Ecuador has seen a large influx of Inca Terns, Peruvian Boobies, and
even Humboldt Penguins.

Waved Albatross – sighting in Costa Rica.

As is expected there is little to no information on the pelagic birds, other
than the Waved Albatross noted above. There has been a reported widespread
nesting failure in breeding Sooty Shearwaters in New Zealand which some
scientists are thinking may be a precursor (predictor) of a strong El Niño.
So what is going offshore is still a mystery, but if the nearshore seabirds
are being shuffled about due to warm waters and low foods, some effect is
likely also with the offshore birds. It is a stretch to predict or say that
this will have any effect on what we see offshore here this season in
California, but it is certainly a situation of note, and something
interesting may show up. A California Waved Albatross would be a good one,
it may also be a good year to look for Wedge-rumped Storm-Petrel in the
storm petrel flocks. So many possibilities! The first shot at going out that
I have is at the end of this month, we shall see what shows up then.
