Short summary
To investigate seasonal distribution of short-tailed shearwaters we conducted vessel-based seabird surveys and net samplings of krill, i.e., their main prey, during summer and fall in the Bering Sea and Chukchi Sea. Short-tailed shearwaters in the Bering Sea during summer moved to feed in the Chukchi Sea during fall, which might be associated with the seasonal increase in krill size in the Chukchi Sea.
