We report the first record of Northern Fulmar Fulmarus glacialis, a common circumpolar Northern Hemisphere species, for South America. An individual that appeared to be of the Pacific origin was observed in February 2017 in waters off central Chile. The Pacific Ocean population on its post-breeding migration rarely goes farther south than Japan or northwest Mexico. One previous extralimital record occurred in waters off New Zealand a few years earlier.
