Ancient Murrelet

While I didn't see the high number of ocean birds I had read reports of at Boiler Bay, I did manage to get shots of some Ancient Murrelet. At the time I didn't realize what they were as they were well off the coast. I can see where a high quality spotting scope would be a good thing to have for viewing off the coast.
Cornell's All About Birds website states that "It is the only seabird that raises its young entirely at sea."
