Today was our last day out on the water and it was a bit on the rough side. But it did give us the chance to see Bermuda Petrels in their element – they are consummate fliers and masters of the ocean winds. As dusk approached, the birds came close to the boat and several pairs we seen, flying in formation and engaging in what appeared to be the initial stages of courtship.
