Photos of the Wilson's Storm Petrel (Oceanites oceanicus) in heavy seas and high winds on the open sea. Their diet consists of krill, crustaceans and squid.WilsonÂ´s storm petrel (Oceanites oceanicus)
During a Storm with strong swell and high wind speeds we met these rare small Wilsonâ€™s Storm Petrels (Oceanites oceanicus) on the open sea off the southern tip of Africa They seemed to be weightless, they were constantly moving and it looked as if they were â€žwalkingâ€œ over the water surface to pick the smallest rests of fish baits. Despite the adverse circumstances they were extremely successful.The natural habitat of the Wilsonâ€™s Storm Petrels is the Antarctic.
