AK - Fork-tailed Storm-petrel

Fork-tailed Storm-petrel - Webster Overlook, St. Paul Island, Alaska.

One of the highlights from the recent Alaska tour with Birdfinders. We discovered this bird just beyond the surf in the North-eastern part of St. Paul Island during an evening of westerlies. I've seen quite a few Fork-tailed Storm-petrels over the years but nothing quite so close as this one. We even had it flying over the beach!
