Subject: [AK Birding] Potter Marsh after the windstorm. ID Help. Fork-tailed Storm-Petrel?
I've just recently moved to Alaska from Mississippi so i'm asking for a bit of ID help on a species i've not come in contact with. I have uploaded some photos in an album in the photos section. Sorry for the low quality. I was in a hurry to get some shots but as it turned out this little guy decided to stick around for over an hour. Thanks in advance for the help!
