*Uncommon but very much expected in deep water off the Northeast during the summer.
Large storm-petrel, with noticeably forked tail, and warm brown overall tone. Long, slender wings, and erratic, nighthawk-like, flight.
I don't have photos of any of these individuals, though I have photos of this species from just before this checklist started. Others on board may have these individuals.
