Black-legged Kittiwake (Rissa tridactyla) - 17Feb2018 and 13Jul2017

Black-legged Kittiwakes are a far ranging bird all over the northern hemisphere.  However, they are pretty scarce in NC and particularly down in Wilmington, so I was tickled when I saw this young one working the shoreline just off of Johnnie Mercer's Pier in 2018 during my big year attempt.

 Here are some adults from Iceland in 2017.
