A Band-rumped Storm-Petrel in fresh plumage off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina (5/28/2011). Experts appear to consider birds in this plumage here on this date to be probable Madeiran Storm-Petrel (<em>O. c. castro</em>). This summer-breeding population nests off Africa in the Madeira Archipelago as far south as the Canary Islands. Photo by Bill Hubick.

Below: A worn Band-rumped Storm-Petrel, presumably Grant's Storm-Petrel, far off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina (5/28/2011). This population nests more widely in the Azores and south to the Canary Islands, mainly in October-November (Howell, Patteson, et al.).

Below: A Scopoli's Shearwater off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina (5/29/2011). This is the Mediterranean form (diomedea) of Cory's Shearwater, which is a candidate for a future split. Note how the white extends into the dark primaries and its smaller bill.
