Cory's Shearwater

Calonectris borealis (Cory, 1881)

Cory's shearwater (Calonectris borealis) is a large shearwater in the seabird family Procellariidae. The genus name Calonectris comes from Ancient Greek kalos, "good" and nectris, "swimmer", and borealis is Latin for "northern". The English name is after the American ornithologist Charles B. Cory.
