Hello, Tweeters,

Yesterday, 1/27/19, while on an Olympic Peninsula Audubon field trip, we spotted a Common Murre in Port Angeles harbor with a bright yellow bill. Otherwise its plumage was similar other murres, maybe a little paler than the others, but still an obvious Common Murre. Unfortunately it was too far offshore for a photo.

Looking online, there is another report of a yellow-billed murre at a nesting colony in Norway in 2008.

It sure got our attention.
