Similar in appearence to the previous species, and once considered a subspecies, it is actually not closely related.Breeding on the Des Venturada and Juan Fernandez Islands, it is common in the Humboldt current. A very adept flier, it is less given to wild careening flight, and will allow ships to approach quite closely.
