Murphy's Petrel

Murphy's Petrel (墨菲氏圓尾鸌)
Pitcairn Islands (2004)

22nd May, 2009. Adamstown

A very special cover from Pitcairn Islands, affixed with full set of Murphy's Petrel stamps, it designed as se-tanget format so the five stamps look like one picture. Murphy's Petrel mostly only occurs in South Pacific nesting from Austral to Pitcairn Islands, however some birds can be found in off coast of south Hawaii or farther to Pacific coast of United States.

Pitcairn Islands is in the middle of South Pacific with only 48 residents, it is not easy to visit as the complicated route. The hardest journey is leave the island, where doesn't have any schedule ship from Pitcairn Islands to Fiji or Vanuatu.
