Yes, Germaine (in Seattle): I have led some bird tours there recently and, indeed, here's a photo from Isaac Sanchez on 11/5/13 when I served as his guide for the day.
Every time I've been to Gull Rock, one or two immature/sub-adult Blue-footed have been present FAR AWAY.
Thus, this photo is obviously a booby, but it's from at least .5 mile away.
Hope this helps you. Regards, Daniel
Got wood-warbler questions? If so, I have answers for you. I'm Daniel Edelstein — biologist, birding guide, birding instructor (www.warblerwatch.com and firstname.lastname@example.org) — who ponders: Are there any wonders in our world more fascinating than the elegant beauty of wood-warblers?

Warbler Guy, I know you're into the little birds, but you seem to live near recent Blue-Footed Booby observations in Marin County, correct? Have you seen the booby at Gull Rock like I read about on Rare Bird Alerts?
