Bird Frenzy

common murre bird frenzy.. the ship captain and the park ranger on our cruise (5-hour cruise) both said they had never seen this before. On the top of this rock (not visible in this photo) is a helicopter. The park ranger thought that the chopper might be researchers, checking out the bird nests/eggs.. and the common murres were going nuts with people near their nests. ?


Whatever the reason, this bird frenzy was loud, and fascinating.
