Oceanodroma leucorhoa | Leach’s storm-petrel


Similar looking to the ʻakeʻake, Leach’s storm-petrel is a migrant visitor to Hawaiʻi. It is most commonly seen in Hawaiian waters from October to April. They can be distinguished with a keen eye from ʻakeʻake by a more forked tail, often a black central line down the middle of it’s white rump, and more erratic flight.
