SHORT-TAILED SHEARWATER Puffinus tenuirostris


Another all-dark species, except for the underwings, and very difficult to distinguish from Sooty Shearwater. Breeding in Southern Australia and Tasmania, it doesn't occur in the Atlantic, and tends to migrate to colder waters. Thus it is found on the edge of the ice in Antarctica, whilst the majority of birds in the Bering sea are this species.
