Murre Flight at Sunset

A large flock of Common Murres (Uria aalge) swoop round Bird Rocks with Tillamook Lighthouse in the background on the edge of the Pacific Ocean.
Built better for diving than flying, they can dive to depths of 180 m (600 ft) but usually dive 30–60 m (100–200 ft).
Common Murres live in large colonies on bare rock ledges high above the ocean. Theirs is located at Chapman Rocks, the 3rd largest Murre colony in the world.
