The Pigeon Guillemot is a diving seabird that is a member of the family alcidae, the same family as auklets and puffins. These birds can be seen year-round in the Puget Sound region, although they are more common in the winter. I took these photos this past week off of the fishing pier in the marina in Edmonds, Washington. It is interesting to note that the birds have already transitioned to their breeding plumage in early February. Spring must be on the way!
