ORGEIRA, José Luis. Recent records of the Atlantic Petrel(Pterodroma incerta) for the Atlantic Regionof the Southern Ocean and Antarctica. Hornero [online]. 2011, vol.26, n.2, pp.167-170. ISSN 0073-3407.

New records of the Atlantic Petrel (Pterodroma incerta) at-sea for the Atlantic region of the Southern Ocean and Antarctica were reported during summer 2009 and 2010. Most of these observations occurred outside the accepted range for this species and improve the available information on its distribution. The Atlantic Petrel has been regularly recorded north and south of the Antarctic Convergence for more than 30 years, although these records are still considered casual and not part of their usual pelagic range.

Keywords : Antarctica; Atlantic Petrel; Pterodroma incerta; South Atlantic Ocean.
