Comments

The microphone is directed towards the "Rock Slab" and a small patch of palm savanna just north of the "Rock Slab" and below the south-west edge of the area known as the "Summit" over which several petrels are using the wind currents to engage in a variety of acrobatic maneuvers. They are occasionally "pairing" up. At approx. 1:05, an intermediate morph bird chasing a dark morph bird fly laterally across the microphone at approx. 30 ft. One of the birds vocalizes. At approx. 2:42, a light morph bird chasing a bird with an undetermined morph fly laterally across the microphone at approx. 60 ft. One of the birds vocalizes. During the recording, all three morphs can be seen.
