Observation details

LIFER. 20+, mostly in pairs. Most individuals still retaining a lot of basic plumage (in contrast to the Marbled Murrelets, all of which were in alternate plumage), so appearing very "frosty". At least one Kittlitz's seen in definitive plumage, however. White outer rectrices ("outer rectries" meaning "most rectrices except for the central pair, apparently).
