Eclipse Island (Western Australia)
The island was named for an observation on September 28, 1791 by Captain George Vancouver "observed this Wednesday morning a partial solar eclipse." He went on the name the barren rocky cluster of isles."
The island has been classified as an Important Bird Area because it has been reported as supporting over 1% of the world's breeding population of Flesh-footed Shearwaters (6000-8000 pairs) and Great-winged Petrels (10,000-15,000 pairs). Other birds that are found on the island include Wedge-tailed Shearwaters, Little shearwaters, Caspian terns and Pacific gulls.
