Wilson's Storm-Petrel
1
Leach's Storm-Petrel

Came off the water in a flock of ~13 WISPs, and flew directly away. Large storm-petrel, with noticeably forked tail, and warm brown overall tone. Long, slender wings, and jerky flight. Very conspicuous among the Wilson's. Not completely unexpected in deep, warm water off NY in August.

2
Band-rumped Storm-Petrel

*Rare, but probably to be expected this far off shore at this time of year. This was the closest to shore that we had Band-rumpeds on this trip which tallied over 50 of them total. Unfortunately I do not have the coordinates for either of these birds. Both were long-winged, large, storm-petrels, but showing wings that were not extremely angular (not as angular as on Leach's), and appearing a bit broader than on Leach's. Clean white rump patch, squared off tails, and no leg projection beyond the tail. Bounding, snappy flight, with intermittent glides interspersed. Appeared obviously colder toned than Leach's.
