Another endemic, this time breeding on Great and Little Barrier Islands off North Island, in the Austral summer, as opposed to Westland which is a winter breeder. Away from NZ dispersal is towards the equator and seas off Peru, foraging in deeper waters than Westland. Birds seen south of Kaikoura are much more likely to be Westland.
