Pigeon Guillemots - Eye Contact

Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, British Columbia

The Pigeon Guillemot ( Cepphus columba ) is very closely related to the Black Guillemot. In the photo you can see their bright red feet. Their mouth lining is also bright red, but you can only see that when they are calling. A group of guillemots are collectively known as a 'bazaar' and a 'loomery' of guillemots.
