Vacation Day 5 continued - Razorbill

Razorbill (Alca torda)

A life bird for us!

Razorbills are found only in the North Atlantic. They nests in colonies on cliffs. Sometimes they don't even build a nest! Usually it's a collection of pebbles and grass.

Their numbers have declined recently due to pollution of the North Atlantic.

Vacation - More to come!
