Rhinoceros Auklet

My wife and I are vacationing in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada this week. On our way across the Juan De Fuca Strait from Port Angeles, Washington to Victoria, I took advantage of the opportunity and took pictures of whatever birds we happened to pass during the trip.
There many Gulls of course; mostly Glaucous-winged and Heermann's. Also, hundreds of Common Murres in both breeding, non-breeding and transitional plumage.
Among all those birds I got a few pictures of a couple of Rhinoceros Auklets. A new life bird for me!
We also got lucky and saw a whale off in the distance.
