Wilson's Storm-Petrel (Oceanites oceanicus)

The following is a photograph of a Wilson's Storm-Petrel on a pelagic trip off Hillarys in June 2000.

Wilson's Storm Petrels are very common on the Hillarys pelagic trips during winter.  They were also fairly common on pelagic trips from Broome to Ashmore Reef in October and November.  I have seen them from the coast at the north mole at Fremantle, Point Peron near Rockingham and Bunker Bay near Cape Naturaliste.
