CommentThis is a large tropical shearwater species which breeds on Japanese and Korean islands. It is a regular non-breeding migrant to Australian tropical waters however we have only one image of this species in the BLP image library. This view shows the bird gliding on bowed wings angled forward at the carpal joints and its pink feet. Also visible are the diagnostic dark streaked underwing coverts. It is the only shearwater with a pale finely streaked face.
