Dark gray M-pattern is visible across upperwings and back in flight. Alternates deep steady wing beats with long glides. Soars in high winds.

INTERESTING FACTS
In flight, the Buller's Shearwater is more graceful than other shearwaters, flapping less and gliding more. Some have been known to nest in burial caves and may use human bones as nest material. When taking off from the nesting colony, they may climb into trees to take flight more easily. A group of shearwaters are collectively known as an "improbability" of shearwaters.
