A Band-rumped Storm-Petrel 95 miles offshore in Maryland and New Jersey waters on 8/15/2010. There are three previous reports of this species in Maryland, one accepted (8/17/1997, Baltimore Canyon) and two others ready/reviewable (7/13/2006, Scotland/Chesapeake Bay and 8/24/2007, pelagic). There are four different populations of this species that could someday be treated as full species. Grant's breeds in the Azores, Madeira, Selvagens, Canaries, and Berlengas. Madeiran breeds in Madeira, Selvagens, and rarely in the Canaries. Monteiro's breeds in the Azores, and Cape Verde only on Cape Verde (Petrels Night and Day). Photo by Bill Hubick.
