Acknowledgments of Fernando Medrano: Most of the work developed by our research group has been funded and advised by American Bird Conservancy (ABC) (especially to Brad Keitt and Hannah Nevins), who helped us to search for funds and giving exceptionally valuable advices. Our project has been funded by the Mohammed Bin Zayed Conservation Fund. Nothing of what I have learned about this species would be possible without the fantastic group of people of the Red de Observadores de Aves y Vida Silvestre de Chile: Rodrigo Barros, who led the Atacama's storm-petrel project for several years, printing his enthusiasm and perseverance to our group, which definitely marked my own life; Rodrigo Silva, Benjamin Gallardo, and Ivo Tejeda, who are leading a fantastic conservation work, which made us going significantly forward in the protection of the species; Ronny Peredo, who has been in the whole development of the project, grappling with the bureaucracies in Arica; and for all the team who have sweat looking for stormies: Pablo Gutiérrez, Daniel Terán, Felipe de Groote, Patrich Cerpa, Fabrice Schmitt and Heraldo Norambuena. I'm thankful to Shawn Billerman (BOW editor) and Rodrigo Barros, who improved this account through his comments. Finally, I'm thankful to Agencia Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo (ANID)/DoctoradoBecasChile/2019-72200117 which granted my PhD, while doing this account.
