Observation details

One individual well seen close to the boat at 10:10. Notable were dark brown upperparts, rounded head with a single whitish plume extending backwards behind eye, and short, thick bill (especially thick at base) with some orange. Second bird surfaced next to boat while we were underway. Rounded head, bulkier body than Cassin's Auklet, dark upperparts with obviously white belly. A bit later one was seen off the bow.
