Cape Verde Storm-Petrel
Recent Nearby Sightings
The Cape Verde Storm Petrel is an ocean going bird found in the Atlantic Ocean, especially around the islands of Cape Verde. It was at one time considered to be a subspecies of the Band-rumped Storm Petrel, but is now considered to be a separate species by the British Birding Association, the Dutch Birding Association and other authorities. They breed much of year but most nest in the winter.
This bird is darker in plumage and the white rump is less conspicuous than Leach's Storm Petrel.
