Tubenose off Lana'i, Hawaii 26 September 2022

Recommended Posts

Hello - I caught this fly-away tubenose near the beach park by the harbor on Lana'i last week.  The only shearwater that comes up on eBird for the location is Wedge-tailed Shearwater but this bird appears to have a forked tail.

Thanks in advance for your ideas.   Moe

I’d say it looks fine for Wedge-tailed.

Pink-footed Shearwater is very rare off Hawaii, and would have a pink bill. This is definitely Wedge-tailed. Look how long that tail is

Thanks folks for having a look...Wedge-tailed is what I'll put on the eBird report and call it a lifer.
