A burrow nesting seabird, the Wilson’s storm-petrel (Oceanites oceanicus) is an excellent model species to investigate the importance of nest characteristics, as it is the smallest endotherm.

Abstract Wilson's storm-petrels are the smallest endotherms (mean mass ca. 40 g) living and breeding in the cold climate of Antarctica and might therefore be expected to require unusually large amounts of food and energy.

Identification record: Wilson's Storm Petrel (Oceanites oceanicus) is a bird which belongs to the family of Oceanitidés and the order of Procellariiformes. Wilson's is the Storm-petrel to watch as it readily approaches boats and can often be observed within 3 feet of the boat.

It follows ships and attends trawlers.(Harrison ). Follows ships means it will follow the wake of a boat that is steaming along without.

We removed eggs from Leach’s Storm-Petrel (Oceanodroma leucorhoa (Vieillot, )) nests on Gull Island, Witless Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, and monitored nest sites for replacement clutches.

Leach’s Storm-Petrels use locally acquired nutrients to lay a single egg that weighs 20% of a female’s body mass. Why Wilson’s Storm-Petrels walk on water is a little uncertain.

It might be to help keep their place over the food, but it might have a trickier purpose. Unlike most storm-petrel species, which have entirely black legs and feet, Wilson’s Storm-Petrels have high.
