Ashy Storm-Petrel

Observation details

2 previous accepted state records. This is the most well-documented with photos and extended views lasting about 12 minutes as fed on chum and fish oil slick around boat. Gray bodied storm-petrel with black wings and deeply forked tail. Perhaps same length as Fork-tailed but thinner body and straighter, longer, thinner wings. Looked very long-tailed in flight. Pale carpal bar, pale under wing linings. Flight swooping, direct and twisting, shallow wing beats.
