Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-sized seabird of rocky coasts. Breeding plumage distinctive, with coral-red feet and large white “spectacles” standing out against the otherwise blackish body. Underparts become largely white during winter and most of the “spectacles” are lost except for a thin eyering. Molting birds are coarsely barred below. Gives loud, high pitched “piiii” calls in its breeding areas.
