Nesting Snow Petrel

Nesting Snow Petrel
Snow Petrels Pagodrome nivea are found around Antarctica and even travel hundreds of kilometers inland (years earlier, I was surprised to see them overhead in the Prince Charles Mtns). This one was nesting under a rock shelter near the Dumont d'Urville base. It would be normal practice to not go so close to nesting birds, but this had chosen to nest alongside one of the main walkways and seemed utterly unconcerned at the passing people!

Bev, I think warm would concern them more: these never stray north of the pack ice. :)
