Wilson's Storm-Petrel, Patton Ridge, CA - 4 Sep 2019

Observation details

Fresh-plumaged bird that followed the boat for hours. It was often distant, but it did make a few close passes to our wake. Nice change from what we usually get with Wilson's, which are often brief views. Small storm-petrel with large white rump, mildly notched tail, long legs with feet extending beyond the tail (some photos show yellow webbing to feet), pale silvery carpal bars, and short triangular looking wings. Fed while foot-pattering.
