Bill and I were down at the Edmonds waterfront this morning, and he took
this distant shot of an alcid just so I could confirm my ID. I thought it
was a juvenile Pigeon Guillemot, and it may be, but when I looked at the
photo, it seemed like this bird’s back was too black. The photos online
show a bird with more black and white on the back. Also, the bill on this
bird seemed thicker than illustrations and photos. So, is it a Pigeon
Guillemot? Or something else?
