One of the seabirds stamps issued in the name of the Maldives in 2014 is supposed to show Wilson's Storm-Petrel (Oceanites oceanicus) which is obviously wrong, so I listed it as unidentified. Recently, I came across this photograph of a Parasitic Jaeger (Stercorarius parasiticus) taken in New Zealand and which appears on this web page. I think it is very likely that this photograph, or one very much like it, was used as a basis of the design. This species is listed for the Maldives as rare/accidental.
