This , "Leach's Storm Petrel", flew on board my vessel during the night of April 25, 2014, and slammed into the superstructure and apparently got killed, because one was Found on the foredeck the next day. A shame for sure!!! Nlnature suggestions doesn't list Leach's Storm Petrel, neither Petrel. Sam

Thanks again FOR YOUR COMMENTS. Yes Tom, first time I took a pic of a Petrel. That happened to me a few times in the past. most times the Petrel survived and flew away after a while. They get blinded by our drive lights. 2- 1000 watt Metal Halide lights. Other seabirds too. Sam
