Insight about the shot or species
Open ocean. Almost exclusively over warm waters; follows warm current of Gulf Stream north. Very seldom comes near land in North America. Nests on islands, both along rocky coastal edges and in wooded areas farther inland.

Populations in the Caribbean vulnerable to disturbance as the human population of that region continues to grow. Formerly a common breeder in Bermuda, last recorded in the 1980s. Has probably declined on larger islands in the Bahamas and elsewhere.
