Cory's Shearwater

Large, lumbering seabird. Diagnostic yellow bill usually only visible at close range. Look for warm pale brown upperparts and white belly. Also note little contrast between the brown head and white throat (compare with distinct capped appearance of Great Shearwater). Slower wingbeats than other shearwaters, especially in calm conditions; wings looked pushed forward in flight. Forms mixed flocks with other shearwaters offshore. eBird
