  1. white-chinned petrel

    The white-chinned petrel is a large seabird species in the family Procellariidae. It is characterized by its largely dark plumage and distinctive white chin mark, although some individuals may lack this feature. The species mainly inhabits Southern Hemisphere oceans and is typically found in Antarctic waters. It feeds on squid, fish, and other marine prey. The white-chinned petrel nests in burrows on islands free from terrestrial predators, laying a single egg per breeding season. Despite its widespread distribution, it is considered vulnerable due to a decrease in population caused by longline fishing operations.
