This recording is taken from the eastern edge of the southern gorge with the mic pointed at the "Hole in the Wall" nesting area. The birds are generally flying over the nesting area into the gorge in a clockwise pattern. At approx. 1:00, a single petrel can be heard vocalizing. This bird is not in a "paired" formation. At approx. 1:36, a light morph bird can be heard chasing a dark morph bird. the closer range calls from this point on, are all dark morph birds chasing dark morph birds.
