Confined to Antarctica as a breeding bird, and rarely seen north of the limits of the pack-ice, this beautiful petrel can be difficult to catch up with, even on Antarctic trips. On the other hand large flocks are sometimes encountered resting on ice floes, but the majority tend to be found away from the peninsula, which of course is where most of the ships visit.
