Cape Verde Storm Petrel
|Cape Verde Storm Petrel|
The Cape Verde Storm Petrel (Oceanodroma jabejabe) is an ocean going bird found in the Atlantic Ocean, especially around the islands of Cape Verde. It was at one time considered to be a subspecies of the Band-rumped Storm Petrel, but is now considered to be a separate species by the British Birding Association, the Dutch Birding Association and other authorities. In its current draft checklist of seabirds the RNBWS considers validity unproven because of wide range of this group of birds, probability all populations not found yet, and failure to compare them all. W.R.P. Bourne.
They breed much of year but most nest in the winter.
