This is much smaller than the preceding, otherwise resembling it in color and markings, being a little lighter under the throat, and the bill more slender in proportion to the sire of the bird.

Bill and feet nearly black, as is also the one above.

Nest. - Nesting habits and range of the bird are the same as the Dark-bodied Shearwater; it is not found on the N.A. coast as commonly as the other.
