Band-rumped storm-petrel Oceanodroma castro

Identification Tips:

Similar species:

Most likely to be confused with other storm petrels. Larger than Wilson's with less extensive white on rump and undertail coverts. Dark feet do not extend beyond tail. Very similar to Leach's but rump patch not divided (difficult to see in field) and flight more direct with shallower wingbeats and shearwater- like glides.
