Cory's Shearwater

Overview
Cory's Shearwater: Large gray-brown shearwater, white underparts, pale yellow bill. Feeds at night on crustaceans and large sqiud it takes from the surface. Best identified by its relatively slow, languid flight compared to other shearwaters. Wings held downward. Soars on fixed wings if wind is up.

Range and Habitat
Cory's Shearwater: Breeds on the Azores and in the Mediterranean, but roams widely all over the Atlantic Ocean during the nonbreeding season.

INTERESTING FACTS
Along with petrels and fulmars, shearwaters are called tubenoses, because a little pipe, fixed to the top of their bill, covers their nasal holes. The Cory's Shearwater was named after the American ornithologist Charles B. Cory. It is the largest shearwater in North American waters. They have a special organ just above the stomach that stores fish oil as an energy reserve. A group of shearwaters are collectively known as an "improbability" of shearwaters.
