Thick-billed Murre

Thick-billed Murre - Uria lomvia


Preobrazhenya bird cliffs and Kolyuchin Island, Chukotka, Russia, 18.8.2015 and 20.8.2015, many!


Also known as Brunnich's Guillemot. The white marking near their bill distinguishes them easily from Common Murres if close enough.   They are also darker in colour than Common Murres.   They nest colonially on bird cliffs near the Arctic Circle, being a northern hemisphere bird.
