CommentThese are the first images of Gould's Petrel posted to BLP. They show ssp caledonica, first described in 1978, and which nest in the high central mountains of New Caledonia. The birds are found from e. Australia to the w. coast of Central and South America. In common with many pelagic species from the tropics, the birds avoid ships and our observations off the nw coast of New Caledonia were of birds far off and flying away. Consequently, these two images are less than ideal and will need to be replaced when better images of this ssp become available.
