Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

This rare seabird is entirely the color of dark chocolate. Most reminiscent of Sooty Shearwater, but note dark underwings, larger size, slower wingbeats, and pink bill. Much darker than Pink-footed Shearwater, but similar size and shape. Often seen alone or with feeding congregations of other shearwaters. Breeds on islands off New Zealand. Not likely to be seen from land; stays further offshore.
