Observation details

Seen on cliffs, in water, and in flight. Differentiated from BLKI by darker mantle and thinner wings. Short bill and bright legs noticeable at close range. Count is conservative and reflects areas on the cliffs where I was able to count perched birds. High numbers like this have not been previously documented for St. Matthew. I’ll be publishing a note regarding my observations and will include a reference here when it is available. I’ll also add some photos to ML.
