NEW ZEALAND STORM-PETREL Pealeornis maoriana


Everyone in the birding community knows the story of this amazing re-discovery in the Hauraki Gulf of North Island, NZ. It is now possible to view this species on a pelagic trip, which run regularly from Auckland. Data on the bird is still being discovered, including its breeding grounds and pelagic range, indeed there may even be another species out there. Suffice to say overall numbers seem small, it is listed as endangered.
