Observation details

***8th country record for Seychelles as confirmed by Seychelles Bird records Committee. This bird was seen at 4°30'26"S 55°35'58"E while crossing from Mahe to Praslin on the high-speed ferry. The photographs were made from 1:31 and again at 1:39 PM, disappearing from my view in the interim, suggesting that the bird was remaining with the boat for a time. Traveling with my wife, I was the sole birder on board and sole viewer of the bird, which never approached particularly close to the boat to my recollection. ID based on the shape of the tail and apparent lightness of bill with a dark tip.
