Scopoli's or Cory's Shearwater

Calonectris [diomedea or borealis] (= Calonectris diomedea) (Scopoli, GA 1769)

Scopoli's shearwater is a seabird in the petrel family Procellariidae. It breeds on rocky islands and on steep coasts in the Mediterranean but outside the breeding season it forages in the Atlantic. It is brownish grey above with darker wings and mostly white below. The bill is pale yellow with a dark patch near the tip. The sexes are alike. It was formerly considered to be conspecific with Cory's shearwater. Source: Wikipedia
