Order: Procellariiformes


Tube-noses have a tube-formed opening on their bill from a salt-excreting gland. This is an adaptation to the pelagic life of these birds. Another adaptation to life at sea is the webbing between the toes in these species.


Procellariiformes is an order in the class Aves.
