This one was photographed foraging at The Nature Conservancy's Waikamoi Preserve on the Island of Maui 9 November 2014. The journal's editors are delighted to see the Hawaiian Islands join the ABA Area in 2016. The first Hawaiian Islands regional report in American Birds was published in 1977. Photograph by Jack Jeffrey. BACK - Murphy's Petrel (Pterodroma ultima) 138 km west of Point St. George, Del Norte County, California, 13 May 2015.
