Cape Verde Shearwater in Guadeloupe – New for the Caribbean!

An exciting bird sighting was recently reported on the BirdsCaribbean Yahoo Group. As reported by Anthony Levesque and Frantz Delcroix, a Shearwater was observed and photographed at sea during a trip at about 6 km East off Désirade island. 

Immediately they saw that it was quite different from the more common Cory’s Shearwater. The photograph was sent to seabirds expert Steve N.G. Howell, who confirmed that the species is Cape Verde Shearwater, a new record for the Caribbean! Congrats, guys!
