Range Description

The Blue Petrel is found throughout southern Oceans. Breeding sites include the Crozet Islands and Kerguelen Island (French Southern Territories), Marion Island and Prince Edward Island (South Africa), Macquarie Island (Australia) and South Georgia (Georgias del Sur). Adults are perhaps mainly sedentary, though young birds are more dispersive (del Hoyo et al. 1992).
