Rockin’ Razor Bills
Fabulous trips today with 8 humpback whales, 1 minke whale, puffins, gannets, guillemonts, bald eagles and razor bills.
Razorbills are a murre but are far less common around the island than the thick billed and common murres. These birds are noted for their deep bill that is shaped like a knife with a white stripe on the end. They have a longer tail than the other two species of murres, but the same black back and white chest that the other two have. These birds are known locally as tinkers.
