Hi…am listening to a video on the Arctic and cannot hear or rather spell the name of the sea birds that can dive up to 100 meters deep, something like Murers…but I know this spelling isn’t right ..can you tell which bird this is? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umAeFKF2uxA
Thick-billed Murres nest in the eastern Arctic and are accomplished pursuit divers, feeding on fish. Murres are called Guillemots in Europe. A related species, the Common
Murre occurs in B.C.
Likely it was one of these that featured in the video.
I am birdwatcher from Poland and Switzerland and will be visiting Delta about 14-15 July 2016. Could you share some recent bird info, or show me places? If it is possible, please contact me per email. 🙂
