Black Storm-Petrel (Oceanodroma melania)
Black Storm-Petrel (Oceanodroma melania) monotypic
Northern Storm-Petrels (Hydrobatidae)
Huatulco, Oaxaca (Oax), Mexico
The only storm-petrel on this trip. Apparently it came in after we had thrown out our chum, but a good while after, as if it had been coming from far away. Very big storm-petrel, long slim proportions and completely dark plumage is good for this species.
