Wilson’s

Friend Bob sent me some photos of a Leach’s Petrel he photographed flying up the beach at Walcott last week. Good photos they are too. They got me looking at some of my own Petrel photos I took in Canada last month. Wilson Petrels. This couple of photos show some of the identification features: the long legs trailing beyond the tail, the white wrap around rump, the square tail, the paddle shaped wings and if you look closely … the webs between the toes are yellow.
