Thick-billed Murre

Thick-billed Murre (Uria lomvia) flying back to the nesting cliffs on Bonaventure Island, off the east edge of Gaspe Peninsula near Perce, Quebec.

 

Although there were 1,000s in the area, they were difficult to access because of their flightiness on the water and the cliff faces where they nested were in-accessible. This is my only image, captured as we were traveling to the island one day.
