A Methodist Bird?

The stunning Mollymawk on the right was one of the highlights of our brief trip out onto Fovaux Strait while we were at Stewart Island.

The one with the yellow striped beak was named by or for James Buller, who was the son of one of the first Wesleyan Missionaries into our country in the mid 19th century.

The white-capped on the left is also a majestic bird but wouldn't any Methodist be delighted with the Buller's Mollymawk?
