Hi all
I was explaining to some of my work colleagues what sort of birds I see when I'm out on pelagic trips earlier this week, using images from google as an illustration of albatrosses, petrels & storm petrels etc and I came across this web page via google images: While I know that this is not a White Bellied Storm Petrel, what is it? - I think it is either a pale phase Soft Plumaged Petrel (my preference) or a pale phase Kermadec Petrel, but I've never seen either myself, so am running off the illustrations in Pizzey and Onley & Schofield. As the latter covers world species, hopefully I have narrowed it down and haven't missed something from elsewhere in the world?
When (if?) there's a consent on ID, I'll send them a comment.
