    Equipment Note

First segment: Several petrels can be heard flying in the "paired" formation clockwise entering, inside, and out of the southern gorge. A single dark morph bird is also calling as it flies over the "Hole in the Wall" nesting area.

Second segment: The bird is flying in a clockwise pattern over the "Hole in the Wall". At approx. :05, it can be heard briefly landing in the nesting area. It flies off, makes a clockwise 360 degree flight and can be heard briefly calling again at :22. Several other petrels can be heard calling in the background as they fly over and through the gorge.
