Observation details

Steve Howell found and IDed. The bird was comparatively smaller than a nearby Sooty Shearwater. Note blocky head; shorter mid-section gap of bill; compact structure; narrower wings; and short neck when compared with SOSH. Per S.N.G. Howell, "It's cute, kind of like a duck; although I know I'm not supposed to say that." I don't disagree.
