MADEIRAN STORM-PETREL
Oceanodroma castro

PREVIOUS

This is the original "Madeiran" stormie, photos taken off Madeira. Seemingly a summer breeder, it actually looks different to the birds taken off Asenscion Island, having little or no tail-fork, but also a somewhat different jizz. As little work seems to have been done on many, more remote, islands, it is possible we may end up with even more new species.
