The Beautiful Black Guillemot

With their markings, Black Guillemots are one of the more beautiful supporting characters on the Puffin Loafing Ledge Live Cam from Seal Island, Maine.

But these markings, like fashion couture, change with the seasons. Black Guillemots are all black with white wing patches in summer, and mostly white with dusky back in winter! So much for no white after Labor Day! Read and hear more from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s AllAboutBirds.com.
