    1. I think it's just showing off, as they are great fliers and if one is dominating the top of the cliff funnel, another comes in and tries to move the 1st on. It was fascinating.

    1. Thanks, brilliant fliers, great show-offs! Fortunately we had a NWN wind and the cliffs faced in that direction. Posted one year ago, modified one year ago

The northern fulmar is a highly abundant sea bird found primarily in subarctic regions of the North Atlantic and North Pacific oceans. Fulmars come in one of two color morphs: a light one, with white head and body and gray wings and tail, and a dark one which is uniformly gray.
