Wilson's Storm-Petrel range

The Wilson's Storm-Petrel is one of the easier storm-petrels to identify because of its long legs that extend out beyond the end of its tail feathers. It has a very large range in the Atlantic Ocean and inhabits a small area in the Pacific Ocean. Both areas are close to North America. This storm-petrel is seen the northern waters of the Caribbean Sea and it has been seen in the waters off of Cuba.
