More to come…



  1. I don’t often see pigeons swimming!!! such wonderful clarity!

    • Me either! It was really neat to see and learn there’s a Sea Pigeon!

      Thank you so much Hannah!

  2. Very nice

  3. Nice shot, Deborah! He’s definitely giving you a look, lol. 🙂

  4. Beautiful picture and so peaceful!

  5. It’s quite recently astonishing to me to surmise that this little animal is agreeable ashore, on the ocean and noticeable all around. Delightful photograph!..

  6. Beautiful bird with such vibrant webbed feet. Deborah, you find the best way to show a creature, simple and yet beautiful!

    • Thank you so much for such a lovely compliment and comment Robin!

      You always find the right words to say!

  7. Beautiful! I so wanted to see one last time I went to Vancouver. I’ve read that they are sometimes seen in the bay on the North Vancouver side. But no luck. Very happy to see yours! 🙂

    • Thank you so much Myriam! It was a first for me! I’ll have more seabird firsts in future posts.

      I hope you get to see one someday!

  8. Great shot, Deborah.

  9. Nice shot, Deborah. Don’t suppose too many guillemots are sponsored by Nike 🙂

  10. It’s just amazing to me to think that this small creature is comfortable on land, on the sea and in the air. Beautiful photo!

    • Thank you Dan! I had no idea before I went on this birding excursion there were sea pigeons! It is amazing!

  11. Reminds me of the quote, “Don’t fire until you see the whites of their eyes.” Of course, I wouldn’t fire at this cutie, but the white part certainly applies. 🙂
