By Isabel Brofksy, Project Puffin Research Supervisor on Seal Island The past week on Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge has been an exciting one for our smallest alcid, the Black Guillemot (Cepphus grylle). On Wednesday, June 29th, a cool, rainy morning, the Audubon Guillemot Burrow cam’s first chick pushed its way out of its egg
We continue our series of posts detailing the different eggs of Seal Island, one of Project Puffin’s research islands, and home to the explore.org Puffin, Arctic Tern, and Guillemot Cams. Seal Island Supervisor Keenan Yakola teaches us about Guillemot eggs.
In celebration of Guillemot Day, Project Puffin staff on Seal Island made these delicious cupcakes. The extra touches of the white patch on the wing and the cranberry red feet made these treats very special! Photo Courtesy of: Jenny Howard
