Cory's Shearwater (Coloriectris diomedea) and Greater Shearwater (Puffinus gravis)

One photo of each species from Michael Brothers to show the two species together
by showing them both on the same page; for educational purposes. The two birds are
in different genera but are quite similar in some respects. They both are in rehab at
the seabird rehabilitation cener. There are several Cory's there at the present time but
only one Greater,the one whose image appears below.

The birds were recovered in Florida waters.
