Common Murre (Uria aalge) - 03Sep2015

They may be common to some people but not for me.  Unfortunately this species is having huge die offs in the Northwest theorized to be because of warming water.  This bird was photographed in 2015 off Elkhorn Slough in Moss Landing and was obviously sick.  I don't think Murres naturally hang out on shore outside of breeding areas.
