SPECIES INFO

The Collared Petrel (Pterodroma brevipes) is a species of seabird in the Procellariidae family. It is sometimes regarded as a subspecies of Gould's Petrel (P. leucoptera).

Its breeding range is uncertain and it is currently known to breed only in Fiji where it occurs on Gau and possibly other islands. It formerly bred in the Cook Islands and may still breed in Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands. It is an unconfirmed breeder in Samoa, American Samoa and French Polynesia.

It nests on steep, forested slopes in a burrow or among tree roots. It feeds in open seas and some disperse into the central Pacific outside the breeding season.
