In the Arctic, the Arctic cod, a small relative of the Atlantic cod that occurs in enormous schools in Arctic waters, is the main prey of many seabird species. A disturbance in the Atlantic Ocean had winds near tropical storm strength as of Tuesday morning, Jthe National Hurricane Center said.

In the middle of the tropical Atlantic Ocean important assemblages may only have the potential to occur at sites where seabirds (i.e. some Procellariiformes and Charadriiformes) that breed at high- or mid-latitudes, but are trans-equatorial migrants, mix with foraging tropical seabirds that breed on remote islands as year-round residents.

A disturbance that is traveling west through the Atlantic has a high 90% chance of developing into a tropical depression or a tropical storm in the next few days.

The distribution, abundance, and species assemblage of top predators - seabirds and cetaceans - can be correlated to water masses as defined by hydrological parameters. In comparison to other oceans, information about the structuring effects of water masses on top predators in the Atlantic Ocean is.

Included in seabirds are gulls, terns, kittiwakes, guillemots, jaegers, skuas, shearwaters, storm-petrels, petrels, puffins, gannet, boobies, razorbill, dovekie, murres, cormorants, auklets, murrelets, albatrosses, fulmar, pelicans, tropicbirds, frigatebirds, noddies and skimmer.

The red-billed tropicbird (Phaethon aethereus) is a tropicbird, one of three closely related species of seabird of tropical oceans. Superficially resembling a tern in appearance, it has mostly white plumage with some black markings on the wings and back, a black mask and, as its common name suggests, a red bill.

Most adults have tail streamers that are about two times their body length, with. The Magellanic Diving Petrel and the Little Auk appear almost identical in appearance. The former is found in the Southern Ocean and the latter in the North Atlantic Ocean and high Arctic region where they nest in large colonies in crevices on scree slopes.

Evidence suggests that the Diving Petrel might have evolved before the Little Auk. The Southern Ocean is known as a “carbon sink” because it absorbs a relatively large amount of carbon from the atmosphere and carries it into the deep ocean. But as carbon levels increase, the ocean becomes more acidic, which may impact the health of the fish and krill that seabirds.

For seabird fanatics this is the proverbial 'once in a lifetime' chance to connect with a host of stunning seabirds including the newly rediscovered New Zealand Storm-Petrel and numerous tropical goodies such as Tahiti Petrel, Gould’s Petrel, White-necked Petrel, Heinroth’s Shearwater, White-throated Storm-Petrel and Grey Ternlet.
