FULMAR PRION Pachyptila crassirostris


Known to breed only on Pyramid Rock and the Bounty Islands, this species is so similar to Fairy Prion that it is often treated as a subspecies. However, the breeding strategy is different and the flight even more erratic. Obviously separating at sea is all but impossible, these photos were "identified" by location (and Rodney Russ).
