RBA: HAWAIIAN PETREL off Cape Scott, Vancouver Island - Sept 18th (Late Report)

At 9:05 am on Sept 18-2022, Mark Wynja and Mike Toochin spotted a Hawaiian Petrel 34 nautical miles WSW of Cape Scott, while aboard the MS. Eurodam Holland America cruise ship. The bird was travelling north parallel to the ship, allowing for good looks by scope, for several minutes, before flying off west. Other observers on board were able to get on the bird as well but it was too distant for photos. Mike Toochin has extensive experience with this species, having seen several in North America.

This is the 6th record for BC.
