Puffinus [assimilis or elegans] (= Puffinus assimilis) Gould, 1838

The Little Shearwater (Puffinus assimilis) is a small shearwater in the petrel family Procellariidae. Despite the generic name, it is unrelated to the puffins, which are auks, the only similarity being that they are both burrow-nesting seabirds. Source: Wikipedia
