The Cape pigeon or Pintado, a pigeon sized petrel
common around sub Antarctic islands and peninsula. They nest
on rocky ledges and usually rear a single chick which looks particularly
shape-less until it fledges. It used to remind me of a fluffy ball
with a head just stuck on the front. The birds tend to feed in flocks
on krill and small fish but also will scavenge on scraps discarded
by skuas and giant petrels when feasting on floating seal carcasses.
