Bulwer's Petrel
Petrels with long wings like this one can be up to 78–90 cm (31–35 in) long. It is mostly brown with a long pointed tail. Planktonic food items are picked up from the surface of the water by this bird as it floats and twists in the air.
Common Tern
The common tern is a seabird in the family Laridae. This bird can be found all over the world, with its four subspecies breeding in temperate and subarctic areas of Europe, Asia, and North America. It moves a lot and spends the winter in coastal tropical and subtropical areas. 
Great Shearwater
This bird is 43–51 cm (16.9–20 in) long and has a wingspan of 105–122 cm (3.5–4.0 ft). By its size and dark upper parts, it can be identified. It has white under parts, except for a brown belly patch and dark shoulder marks. You can tell because it has a white "horseshoe" on the base of its tail. The stiff flight, like that of a large Manx shearwater, is also very different from other birds. 
Little White Egret
With a small dark bill, blackish legs, and yellow feet, this is a small snow-white heron ("golden slippers"). Adults that are breeding have two long, wispy head plumes and a spray of white plumes (called "aigrettes") on the back of their necks. Inhabits lakes, rivers, marshes, estuaries, and almost any place where there are small fish. As singles or small, loose groups, they nest and roost together.
Manx Shearwater
This is a small black-and-white shearwater that flies with quick wingbeats. Notice how dark and smudgy its face is, with white curling up behind its cheek. The underwing is mostly white, but sometimes there are dark spots on it. The bird flies close to the water with quick wingbeats, almost like an alcid. It sometimes arcs up high in strong wind.
Ruddy Turnstone
An elongated bird with a short, chisel-like beak that isn't very big. Breeding plumage is especially beautiful because it has bright rusty upper parts and a bold black-and-white pattern on the head and neck. If the bird isn't breeding, it's darker brown, but it still has a lot of pattern. You can see the orange legs. Flipping over rocks, shells, and other debris is an interesting way to get invertebrates, but it can be dangerous.
