New Zealand storm petrel

The New Zealand Storm Petrel was thought to be extinct from 1850 until 2003 when a sightings led to the discovery of a small colony. It was an amazing privilege to watch these birds skipping and skating on the surface of the ocean during a 2014 trip to New Zealand - I'm going to be playing catch up over the next few days and sharing more images of New Zealand birds! #newzealandstormpetrel #Fregattamaoriana #Fregata #stormpetrel #pelagic #birding #newzealand #sosuthernoceans #procellariiformes #tubenoses #criticallyendangered
