Balearic Shearwater

Puffinus mauretanicus Lowe, PR, 1921

The Balearic Shearwater (Puffinus mauretanicus) is a medium-sized shearwater in the seabird family Procellariidae. It was long regarded a subspecies of the Manx Shearwater; see there for more on the Puffinus puffinus superspecies; following an initial split it was held to be a subspecies of the "Mediterranean Shearwater" (Sibley & Monroe 1990) for nearly ten more years, until it was resolved to be a distinct species, separate from the Yelkouan Shearwater (Wink et al. 1993, Heidrich et al. 1998, Sangster et al. 2002). It is the last taxon of the puffinus complex that was recognized as a separate entity. Source: Wikipedia
