CommentMottled Petrels were quite commonly observed in our crossing of the Southern Ocean from south of Stewart Island to beyond the Antarctic Circle. They rarely approached the ship and would generally not come much closer than around 200 meters as they flew past. As a result most images need to be severely cropped. In flight they are most easily confused with Soft-plumaged Petrels with a very similar dark-grey dorsal pattern. However the broad black carpal bar and dark sooty belly are quite distinctive even from a considerable distance
