Love Is In The Air For RazorBills.
Razorbills are short (17 inches long), chunky seabirds with short, stubby wings. They are members of the auk family and are closely related to puffins, guillemots, and murres. The breeding adult razorbill is distinguished by a black back and head, white belly, thick bill, and uptilted tail (when swimming)… Legs and feet are black. On breeding grounds, razorbills make a low guttural or croaking urrr sound. (Read more at Maine.gov).
See the razorbills live on the Puffin Cam in 5 days.
The Countdown has Begun!
The Puffin Cam is due to return in a few days. When the camera and team are ready, keep an eye out for the little painted birds on their ledge and in their burrows. Until then, catch highlights in brief videos here!
