Pigeon Guillemot Cepphus columba

Locally common on salwater shorelines, especially in Island County where confirmed at many locations including Smith Island. Breeding confirmed in Kitsap County from both Hood Canal and Puget Sound shores. Although less common in King County, confirmed even on downtown Seattle waterfront. For nesting utilizes wharves, piers, and crevices between boulders on jetties. In our area nests frequently in natural burrows in high bluffs, which they are capable of excavating (Dawson 1909).
