Flesh-footed Shearwater


(Ardenna carneipes - formerly Puffinus carneipes)

Seen only rarely off the Pacific coast, Flesh-footed Shearwater is identified by its pink bill and dark underside. By contrast, the much more common Pink-footed Shearwater has a pink bill and light underside, and the also common Sooty Shearwater has both dark bill and dark underside.
