A 2nd year bird joined us at the shelf and followed us back inshore. While on our way back, a 3rd year bird joined us briefly. See http://www.adarman.com/Pelagics/Tasmania-Pelagics/2016-May-29-Eaglehawk-Neck/ for images of both birds. Dark underwing pattern and dark bill along with hooded / collared appearance diagnostic. Excellent views of both birds. One bird (2nd year) shown in my photos below.

I found an intermediate phase bird that joined us shortly after a move off the shelf. Visible pale primary shafts in the upperwing diagnostic, along with head, tail shape and overall jizz. The underwing and underbody pattern had many on board frothing with excitement! Photos available at http://www.adarman.com/Pelagics/Tasmania-Pelagics/2016-May-29-Eaglehawk-Neck/

I alerted the others on board to a different Prion, which made two quick semi-close passes before heading down the slick and away. ID'd from photos on board as a Slender-billed based on large white supercilium, bill structure and shape and tail pattern. See photos here: http://www.adarman.com/Pelagics/Tasmania-Pelagics/2016-May-29-Eaglehawk-Neck/

One bird with a very dark bill tip and one with a paler bill tip joined us at our first stop off the shelf. Large Procellarid ID'd from bill pattern. Photos of both birds available here: http://www.adarman.com/Pelagics/Tasmania-Pelagics/2016-May-29-Eaglehawk-Neck/
