A sort of intermediate between Petrels and Prions, this unique species breeds on a number of subantarctic islands, and, like Prions, is gregarious at sea, often occuring in large flocks. A less erratic flight makes it easier to photograph, and the obvious white tail-tip distinguishes it from Prions, which all have black tips to the tail.
