    Comments: *Uncommon - Extremely small alcid flying out toward Block Island Sound. Wingbeats so fast as to appear a blur. Miniscule, with rotund body and stubby wings and short bill that was hardly even visible. Completely white beneath with all dark wings. Flight pattern reminiscent of that of a Mourning Dove, indirect and wheeling back and forth over the waves. Unlike any other alcid I have seen in flight, both in terms of size and flight style. Somewhat surprisingly early, but it looks as if there have been some seen off Cape Cod lately.
