White-bellied Storm Petrel

White-bellied Storm petrel (Fregetta grallaria)

Wingspan of 460mm body weight 46-74g.

This a very hard bird to photograph as he is so fast and so small, the smallest sea bird on the ocean. Breeds on the outer islands around Lord Howe. Population on Lord Howe is polymorphic. You can find the black morph if you are lucky, only a very few like this.
