rather localised and difficult to identify - Zino's Petrel has it all.
It seems the only reliable way to see this species away from the
breeding colonies is on specially targeted pelagic trips from Madeira.

quite as difficult to photograph as Bulwer's these birds still moved
very fast indeed and tended not to hang around for long. The
individuals we saw did, however, show themselves much better than the
closely related Fea's Petrel and a few put on a really good show for us.
extensive white on the underwing and the delicate beak confirm that
this is a Zino's - compare the bill with a Fea's Petrel here
To see this species in daylight one really needs to take a pelagic
trip. The alternative is to visit the breeding colonies at night -
something I did not find time to do myself during my visit to Madeira.
This night time visit is an unforgetable experience according to those
I have spoken to about it.
