Bridled Common Murre

420 1


This portrait of a bridled common murre clearly shows the white feathering around and behind the eye. For most birds of this species, these feathers are very dark, almost blending in with the other plumage. The further north they breed, the greater the percentage of this bridled version of the murre.
