are a few photos of great-winged petrels from my march, 2008, cruise to new
zealand. the photo posted by harry is for me, at best, an impression - but
not of a great-winged petrel. a close look at the rump of the bird looks a
tad lighter than the rest of the upper plumage. it suggests the wavy
barred rump on a subadult light-phase parasitic.
