The license for the image of a Great Skua has already been approved above - but I have doubts.
The photograph appears not to have been taken by the uploader as the source is given as "With permission from: Murray Nurse, Guildford , England". My understanding is that in such cases an OTRS certificate is required. Aa77zz talk , 21 October UTC. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

I've replaced the medal with an FP of the man himself, the only advantage of the medal was that it showed the bird too. I've taken out the chickpic. I have an out of copyright coloured figure of a stormy's egg, but the quality is too poor, better without unless I can find another source. I'll see if Wehwalt who knows coins quite well can help.
Nikkimaria talk , 7 October UTC for your help I'm pleased to give you credit, all problems fixed in a single edit. I've scythed the it s with vim and vigour Done words-as-words with MoS rigour Linnaeus now linked to the page and the book Thank you for comments and taking a look. Oops, I failed to spot this link, although my description is fuller, I think Jimfbleak - talk to me? I hope so too, it's not an easy subject, a tiny scrap only normally seen at sea Jimfbleak - talk to me?
Removed Jimfbleak - talk to me?
I'm not sure. The wiki article does this may not be a good guide. Bird Study. Also available here. The publication by Mante and Debize which is cited elsewhere in the wiki article, also mentions 5 meters but doesn't give a source. I've found another publication that mention diving: Griffiths, A M It reports that the birds dived to around 30cm. The wiki article on the Band-rumped Storm Petrel also mentions diving.
I have doubts about the 5m depth - it could easily be faulty depth gauges - but perhaps the paper should be mentioned in this article. Having seen these birds, I was surprised to discover that they can dive at all. Flood is supported by photos and videos. I find the Mediterranean results difficult to believe, but you are right, they need mentioning.
I cannot see page but page of the 4th edition here has "Although diving petrels Pelecanoides have the nostrils beak and stomach glands that are characteristic of tubenoses Does HBW have an article that mentions the physiology of Procellariiformes? Or perhaps one of the books cited in the Procellariiformes article - or Warham, John London: Academic Press.
I haven't checked these doh Leon et al do not cite a prior publication and rely on 'personal communications'. They write "There is some evidence of a decline in Storm-petrels in Foula, as many areas where birds could be heard calling from burrows in the s are no longer occupied. Concise BWP doesn't say that either, sourced to Leon et al and modified to say what they found Jimfbleak - talk to me?
The isbn points to the 4th edition published in The authors are George Karleskint, Jr. The edition should be specified. Done Jimfbleak - talk to me? Aa77zz talk , 12 October UTC Thanks for review so far , comments, and for formatting the journals so helpfully Jimfbleak - talk to me? The North Atlantic nominate subspecies, H.
I think this is something that crept in late, replaced full stop with comma now Jimfbleak - talk to me? An alternative isn't jumping out at me yet It otherwise frequents Consider using commas to split adjectives, as in "a fluttering, bat-like flight". I think "with Halipeurus pelagicus occurring at much higher densities" would be better than "Halipeurus pelagicus occurring at much higher densities".
Thanks for review, comments and support Jimfbleak - talk to me? The isbn in the article is that of the hardback and the pages are given as 74 to Is there this much difference between the paperback and hardback? I put the date of the first edition, now corrected to the second edition that I actually used. The page numbers are significantly different because the second edition uses a revised taxonomic sequence that starts with Anseriformes and Galliformes, effectively pushing all the other orders about 50 pages further back Jimfbleak - talk to me?
Apparently, the term is used for storm petrels in general and not just the European Storm Petrel species. Snowman talk , 20 October UTC Added a footnote and ref to indicate term has been transferred to other petrels Jimfbleak - talk to me? I think that the links of Mother Carey's chickens to one species of storm petrol needs double checking.
I note that Linnaeus scientifically described the European Storm Petrel in When near the Strait of Magellan he writes: "we saw also a great many pintado birds of nearly the same size which are prettily spotted with black and white and constantly on the wing though they frequently appear as if they were walking upon the water like the peterels to which sailors have given the name of Mother Carey's chickens and we saw also many of these.
Well, I've already added the note to say that the term is used for other storm petrels, I would have thought that was sufficient. Non-ornithologists often treated similar species such as the European and Wilson's Storm Petrels as effectively the same, just like people refer to "gulls" rather than Black-headed Gull etc. When I was researching this, I had to take some care to exclude US sources which just said Storm Petrel when they could only have been referring to Wilson's.

Same with Mother Carey's Chickens. While the Pintado is very distinctive, the description only says it feeds like Mother Carey's Chicken. Turning to the quote and we saw also many of these , I don't know that 18th-century sailors would have distinguished the various white-rumped storm petrels, they are tricky enough even when you know what you are looking for. I've already said that Linnaeus described the European species in para 2 of taxonomy, not sure what you are getting at there. I think that the footnote is not adequate, and I think that this should be in the main text and explained properly.
The use of this term must obviously pre-date Hawkesworth for it to make sense to his readers, and it's overwhelmingly likely that the term applied originally to the British bird and expanded to other white-rumped species because their similarity meant that they were assumed to be the same bird. Now, that's OR, but so is your claim that it was first applied to all storm petrels.
Unless you can reference your claim, I can't see that we can do more than state the fact Jimfbleak - talk to me? I have not got access to the Chambers dictionary, but I would have thought that the OED would be better as a reference. The OED has a list of quotes for the use of the "Mother Carey" going back to and it seems that the oldest quote links the term to seabirds in the South Seas.
How far does the Chambers dictionary go back? Although the first surviving written record is , it's obvious even from that quote that the term was in general use earlier. He wrote "Mother Carey's chickens" expecting his readers to know the term. The fact that the first written record was in the southern oceans obviously doesn't imply that the term originated there, which would be extremely unlikely. If this is a sticking point as well as Gorky, I might as well remove the whole of the "In Culture" section to try to move this FAC along Jimfbleak - talk to me?
It might be possible to write a brief account of the use of these terms after , but not before. Snowman talk , 28 October UTC Surely the most appropriate place for the history of the term is at the Mother Carey's chickens article? I don't see that as particularly relevant to this page, we already have an RS source that the term applies to this species, and I've accepted that it may be applied to similar species too Jimfbleak - talk to me? Time Magazine. Subscription needed. I am not sure if the source is the book or the review. Apparently, it does not apply to one species of storm petrol.

Snowman talk , 21 October UTC Well, you are right that the Russian word doesn't refer to a specific seabird species, and Gorky wasn't an ornithologist. What I've said is that the poem is translated into English as Stormy Petrel, and similarly for Gorky's nickname. This is clearly the case, and the various non-Russian anarchist groups took their names from the English version.
It's obviously the European species that's intended in the English versions, why would European anarchists want to refer to any other species? The article should be clearer than that. It should say that the English version is a misinterpretation of the Russian, if that is what has happened.

I think that the article is currently misleading. Snowman talk , 24 October UTC I've added a clause that it may not be an accurate translation of the Russian although I can't find any English-language text that gives a different version , 24 October UTC Jimfbleak - talk to me? Snowman talk , 24 October UTC according to an unreferenced claim in a Wikipedia article, doubly unreliable.
