Azores Birder's Pelagic 

This trip is specifically aimed at birders, particularly world and western Palearctic

listers to see the endemic  Monteiro’s Petrel and also to explore for other rare

seabirds and local specialities including Swinhoe’s Storm Petrel,

‘Grant’s’ Band-rumped Storm Petrel, Barolo’s Shearwater, Wilson’s Storm Petrel

and other North Atlantic specialities.  

There are two options- the full week trip which also includes going to see the

Azores Bullfinch, for those world listers or WP listers who still need that species or

the five day trip which focuses on pelagics only.
