Bulwers Petrel

Distribution / Range

Bulwer's Petrel breed in the north Atlantic in colonies on islands in the Cape Verde Islands, Azores, Canary Islands and Madeira groups; as well as on islands across the north Pacific from east of China to Hawaii.

After the breeding season, they spend the rest of the year at sea - mainly in tropical waters.

This species has been recorded in Europe as a rare vagrant to Ireland, Great Britain, Portugal and the Netherlands. It has also appeared as a vagrant in North America, with rare sightings far off the coast of both California and North Carolina.
