Great Shearwater


(Ardenna gravis - formerly Puffinus gravis)

Formerly called Greater Shearwater, the Great Shearwater is one of the two large Atlantic shearwaters, Cory’s Shearwater being the other. They are very easy to tell apart as Cory’s has a yellow bill, while Great has a dark bill and dark underwing markings.
