Sun 17highlightAmsterdam Albatross Diomedea amsterdamensis
Bremer Canyon, Western Australia
Seen during Naturaliste Charters Orca Tours. A major Orca predation event was occurring with large volumes of scraps for the thronged seabirds to feed on. Over a thousand seabirds had gathered for the feast - this is far more than we see on a typical day out in the Bremer Canyon. This included over 1000 Flesh-footed Shearwaters, 100s Great-winged Petrels, 100+ Indian Yellow-nosed Albatross, dozens of Shy and Black-browed Albatross, 2 Campbell Albatross and 5 Wandering Albatross. There were also 100s of Wilson's Storm-Petrels, 10+ White-faced Storm-Petrel, a single Black-bellied Storm-Petrel and 4 White-chinned Petrel. eBird checklist
