Fork-tailed Storm-Petrel

Observation details

Flight eratic, zig-zagging, choppy, changing speed, brief shearwater-like glides, halting pauses, hover-feeding and foot-pattering, never long in a straight line. Compared with Ashy Storm-Petrel this species more chunky, blunt body, broader and slightly rounder wings held forward at wrist.
